Just Listen to Yourself
Here is an interesting idea for improving your ability to communicate at work. One CEO, Ralph Stayer, tried tape recording a meeting when he became frustrated that employees did not seem to hear his messages. Reviewing the tapes revealed to Ralph that he stifled employee participation. For example, as soon as an idea was opened for discussion, Stayer himself would jump in with, \”What do you think? Here\’s what I think.\” Painful as it was to play back his own words, Stayer says the tape helped him understand and change his communication approach and employees are now more comfortable voicing their opinions.
