Missed Communications: Skills for Cross-Functional Teams
Misunderstanding, lost productivity, and errors are a few of the costly issues that can arise in your company from a breakdown in communication. It can also lead to frustrated employees, low morale and missed opportunities for collaboration and innovation.
Sparked by conversations at the Tech Manitoba Idea Lab, we are partnering with internationally renowned applied improvisation trainer Stephen Sim to bring youMissed Communications. This 3-part online series is designed to help teams cut through jargon, go beyond language and refine the skills needed to deliver communication that resonates.
Applied Improvisation is an instructional strategy that adapts the concepts of improvisational theatre to teach interpersonal communication, collaboration and flexibility in a changing environment. Improv is about passing detailed information quickly and effectively in real-time. The skills that make for an entertaining performance and beautiful new music are also essential for any effective communication between people.
