Today I went to an educational session about connecting with people on a more personal level. Instead of just speaking in passing and with no purpose, we need to start having actual conversations. Questions like, “What has been the best part of your day” make for deeper conversation as opposed to, “Hey how are you?”. By asking these deeper questions and actually listening to one another, we can form deeper connections with one another and work better together.
We also learned about the four different leadership languages- logical, expressive, affectionate and direct. These different leadership languages each have their own strengths and weaknesses. Once we identify which “language” we speak as well as our peers, we can better work together and reach shared goals as a team.
