Communicating for Impact and Results

Effective communication is not about faking the right body language, saying the right words, or forcing the right tone of voice. Who you are and the relationship you have with the person you are communicating with has the biggest impact on what you say and how you say it. At the Growth Studio, we believe that

 

"It's not a communication problem but a connection problem" 

When we have an idea, the first thing we do is communicate it. When we need help from others, the first thing we do is ask. There is a step between our idea and desires and communicating them so that it can have an impact. That missing link is connection. If you ever wonder why no one seems to think your great idea will work or why your co-workers don't seem to be paying attention, or why your team is not inspired and engaged, it is because you are likely not connecting when you communicate and lead.

 

Everyone talks, but talk is cheap and only yields limited results.
