Conversational Ballgames: How You Speak and Listen Unknowingly Impacts Project Teams
Everyone knows that good communication on project teams is key to results. What they don’t realize is how culture and “cultural layering” impacts the way they think this communication should happen. Most also overlook that culture can include not only country and language, but also the region, family, gender, age, and conversational style.
This interactive presentation addresses 4 “Conversational Ballgames” that determine the “game style” people use to speak and listen, as well as the “rules of the game” they unknowingly apply when interacting with others. The presentation illuminates how differing games can impact the expectations and assumptions that result in conflict and a loss of trust. In turn, it can undermine the success of project teams, particularly those with other cross-cultural factors.
Educational Presentation – TBD
