Let’s face it.
We’re all moving too fast.
Texts are flung out on the fly.
Emails are all too frequently half-baked or marked by massive misspellings.
Conversations are rushed or rudely interrupted by a phone call.
There’s no doubt that we are operating in an increasingly communication-challenged environment…and we’re bound to fall into avoidable blunders.
In fact, my guess is that most of us have a way-more-memorable-than-we’d-like-to-admit mistake in communicating with our colleagues.
So how about you?
What has been your biggest communications gaffe and how did you fix it?
Bonus: The best answer will receive a free ticket to the GovLoop and Young Government Leader’s NextGen+ event on December 6, 2012.
Deadline is Friday, Nov. 16. Share yours in this discussion on GovLoop!
You may submit an anonymous response to email@example.com.
P.S. Andrew will also be leading a workshop at NextGen+ DC called “Become a Brilliant Communicator.” We’ll explore strategies for methodically moving through your daily communications minefield and explore common scenarios that can trip you up.
