Impromptu Dialoguing

The incredible world of social media has multiplied the channels available to communicate with each other. Now with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter we can keep in touch with everyone we know with a click of a button. We can craft the perfect comment to a friend’s message because there’s no rush to respond. It’s all good.

 

Or is it? We are citizens of a dual universe. We live simultaneously in a cyber world as well as the “old-fashioned” bricks and mortar world. Live face-to-face communication is where relationships are formed and solidified. We are continuously bombarded with our colleagues showing up at our desks at work expecting immediate responses to their concerns. Your boss will not likely be sending you a text message anytime soon. And even if he does, you can be sure he’ll be arriving at your cubicle a few moments later.

 

We live in a world of immediacy. The better you are at dealing with urgency, the more valuable you’ll be to your company. I call this type of transaction “impromptu dialogue.” And there are specific skills you’ll need to excel in this arena.

 

Come to my talk on August 12th in NYC and learn about five simple techniques you can use to bring about better personal and professional relationships, immediately.
