Transcript

  • 1. global mentoring programs MAKING AN IMPACT THROUGH EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATIONS f r o m s u r v i v a l t o s i g n i f i c a n c e
  • 2. The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place. “” “ George Bernard Shaw, Playwright, political activist (1856 - 1950)
  • 3. ELIMINATE NOISE LET PRIORITIES RISE TO THE TOP 1 When lower priorities compete for your attention, your communication suffers. Give it the time & attention it deserves. If YOU aren’t clear about what you need, how can anybody else be? f r o m s u r v i v a l t o s i g n i f i c a n c e
  • 4. KNOW YOUR TOPIC BE A CREDIBLE AUTHORITY Use the most resourceful person on the team to communicate team goals and needs. Save time, energy & resources by delegating others to lead the discussions when they know more. g l o b a l m e n t o r i n g p r o g r a m s 2
  • 5. TAILOR YOUR MESSAGE TO YOUR UNIQUE AUDIENCE Whether communicating with your team, clients or potential clients, make sure your message is direct and uniquely relevant to them. If not, your message is just an unwelcome interruption. f r o m s u r v i v a l t o s i g n i f i c a n c e 3
  • 6. CONNECT & ENGAGE KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE’S NEEDS People hear what they want to hear. When people listen or read, they are filtering out content for their needs. If you know those needs, you will have their attention & inspire action. g l o b a l m e n t o r i n g p r o g r a m s 4
  • 7. OFFER A WIN-WIN NOBODY WILL ACT JUST FOR YOU Connect members personally to team goals. You can inspire people with fear/hope, but the most reliable, effective & sustainable method is to inspire people to act on their own behalf. f r o m s u r v i v a l t o s i g n i f i c a n c e 5
  • 8. ASK QUESTIONS LISTEN TO NEEDS Ask questions to seek clarity and listen not only to the words a person says, but the way they say them. Grasp the spoken and unspoken needs that they are communicating. g l o b a l m e n t o r i n g p r o grams 6
  • 9. INFORM & INFLUENCE MAKE YOUR COMMUNICATIONS COUNT Each time you reach out to your team about a project, maximize your team’s effectiveness by only communicating what is needed to clarify and/or advance the team towards the goals. f r o m s u r v i v a l t o s i g n i f i c a n c e 7
  • 10. USE THE BEST MEDIUM MINIMIZE OVER-USE OF EMAIL Emails are horrible for intra-team communication - piling up and working against you. Explore other available, effective tools that move you and your team faster to your goals. g l o b a l m e n t o r i n g p r o grams 8
  • 11. GET CONFIRMATION MOVE AHEAD TOGETHER AS A TEAM To move ahead smoothly, it is important to summarize what was agreed upon as a team. Follow up verbal communication with written to use as a guide and source of reference. f r o m s u r v i v a l t o s i g n i f i c a n c e 9
  • 12. TRUST YOUR TEAM & ADAPT WHEN NECESSARY 10 Once you’ve communicated, trust that you have the best people in the right roles to move towards the goals. If communication is a recurring problem, make personnel adjustments. g l o b a l m e n t o r i n g p r o grams
