28 Apr Now What?
It’s been a year. A year of change and adjustment, and for many people and organizations, a year of accepting a new normal.
This article (https://www.redhat.com/en/blog/business-changing-new-normal-after-covid-19) suggests what a new normal will require, and it’s not hard to imagine how communication will influence and be influenced by these changes.
Communicating through our devices, and meeting one-another on screens can smooth rough edges, but friction-free can mean broad and unclear. Lost are the layers of messaging provided by body language, repeated conversations, casual referencing. Processes that are simplified can derail effective problem-solving, decision-making can suffer from reticent team-members, and individuals can be lost in zoom flurries where those who are quick and vocal take over.
Attention to communication will be a big part of the new normal.
Intentional Communication– Focus on your message and learn how to ensure delivery
Intentional Branding – Identify and define your professional statement and learn to promote it.
