Have you ever walked away from a conversation sure the other person understood all the instructions and expectations?

They may have even told you they got it all and understood what you wanted. And only as things are going sideways do you realize that they actually didn’t fully understand what you wanted from them.

I’m sure we’ve all had that experience and it can be exasperating. And as much as we learn from those experiences, it takes a certain skill to guarantee that all the information communicated has be received and understood as intended.

In this episode I have Lynae Remondino back and we’re going to discuss how to ask questions so there are no misunderstandings.

Are there some people in your life that you find always misunderstand you and what your intentions are?

We all have people in our lives that are so easy to get along with and those that always seem to question our ideas or our approach to an initiative.

Here’s the thing, it may have nothing to do with you and everything to do with having different communication styles.

Differences in communication styles, if appreciated, can be the basis of strong relationships and strong teams. But if not understood or appreciated, communication style differences can tear relationships and teams apart.

For this episode I invited Lynae Remondino, a Talent Management Director and a genius at unlocking potential while improving organizational effectiveness and efficiencies. She is a strategic and an empathetic professional who acknowledges her purpose in life is to advocate for people. 

Lynae’s certifications include Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Situational Leadership, Development Dimensions International Leadership Facilitator, and Succession Planning and Talent Development.

In this episode Lynae and I chatted about:

  • What it means to adapt your communication style
  • Why it’s important to adapt your style (and not abdicate your style)
  • The four different communication styles based on the DiSC and BEST models
  • Which communication styles are more prevalent (you may find yourself outnumbered)
  • How to develop the ability to adapt their communication style

Are you at a loss for how to handle those seemingly small awkward moments at work?

Whether it’s being interrupted, talked over, hearing women referred to as girls, or getting a men’s polo shirt as a company gift. It can be hard to know how to appropriately handle these behaviors and situations, and easy to convince yourself it’s not a big deal.

But it is a big deal. Because these behaviors create a culture that make women feel like they are not appreciated or respected as colleagues or team members.

Hence, my conversation with Dawn Hudson. 

In this episode Dawn and I chatted about:

  • Why she and the Band of Sisters decided to focus on gender rooted micro-aggressions in the workplace?
  • The variety of suggestions for the same scenario provided by the different authors and how impacted their relationships and the approach to the book.
  • What’s at stake for companies if they don’t address microaggressions in the workplace.
  • Advice Dawn would give to anyone looking to advance their career.

Are negative thoughts sabotaging you?

I frequently talk with talented, experienced and incredibly capable women. For the most part, they are doing great: setting goals, creating plans to accomplish them, and making progress in their careers.

Occasionally, many of these women express a desire for things to be better. Not externally, necessarily. But internally.

They say things like,

“I wish I could get out of my own way.”

“If I could just get over the self-doubt.”

And sometimes, “Even when things are going well, I have this nagging voice in my head that ruins any opportunity I have to feel satisfied.”

This episode is covering the very thing that drives your behavior, what you do and how you do it: mindset.

Not only that, mindset determines how quickly you will bounce back from setbacks and mistakes, and whether or not you are able to feel satisfaction or fulfillment.
