Our voices are an essential part of everyday communication, making effective communication one of our most important life skills. We choose words to run meetings, present big ideas, and communicate with our teammates. Effective communication is not just exchanging information; it is learning and understanding emotion and intention, as well as developing deep listening. Adopting these skills builds a healthy workplace, improves teamwork, and is key to problem-solving. Our brains have evolved over millions of years, meaning we sometimes still get caught in the fight or flight mechanism (also called lizard brain) that triggers complex emotions that override our conscious minds. That feeds into Imposter Syndrome, the feeling of self-doubt or fraud that sabotages our self-worth, and is a recipe for not finding or using your voice for effective communication.
Join Heather Newman, Microsoft MVP and CMO of Content Panda as she talks through three ways to find your voice through overcoming Imposter Syndrome and bypassing Lizard Brain.
Attendees will walk away with tips and tricks for communicating effectively with individual teammates and in groups.
