How knowing what drives you improves communication

Think about the last time you had a meaningful conversation with someone at work. Did you walk away feeling good about the subject or project? Did your good mood make you feel like you could accomplish other things? I’ll bet whomever you talked to afterward felt your happiness, which likely led to another meaningful conversation.

Now, think about the last time you had a conversation with someone at work that didn’t go very well. Who was it with? Were you upset? Did you feel unheard, misunderstood or maybe even disrespected? Were you unable to focus on your work after the conversation? Do you think the next person you talked to felt something was bothering you or felt your disengagement?

Can you see where this is going? Good or bad, one conversation can have a ripple effect throughout an organization. It affects morale, engagement and productivity. Poor communication is a major reason for project failure. You can start to visualize how this ripple effect impacts the bottom line.
