Overcoming Common Communication Challenges

 

Learn to identify common communication challenges in order to avoid them.

How do you overcome common communication challenges? You start by getting yourself under control. That starts with practicing the idea of presuming or assuming benign intent. If you understand that most people, including yourself, have a negativity bias when you don’t understand something or something isn’t the way you think it should be, by practicing the assumption of benign intent it will help you to not get as angry or frustrated with the situation. Attempt to be curious rather than be judging. This video reviews how to practice benign intent, discusses issues to consider that affect communication strategy, and explains the DISC Model of communication.
