As much as we’d like everyone to communicate like we do, in order to make a real difference on our teams we need to learn how to communicate with our teammates in a language they can understand. in this episode Michael and Chris discuss the importance of adjusting our style to account for the needs of others.

Show Notes:

“Should I have to change my style for other people? Can’t they accept that this is how I communicate?” Sure, they can. But if you want to influence people and have them understand what you’re sharing with them, you’ll probably need to understand something about how they take in certain styles of communication.

In this episode Michael and Chris the importance of knowing the people you’re talking with, and adjusting based on their needs – not yours.
