Overcoming Assumptions for Better Communication

Unmet expectations are frustrating, and almost always the result of assumptions. For many of us, making assumptions is so pervasive that we don’t even recognize it in our daily lives.

We may assume…
…people will ask for what they need.
…we can’t ask too many questions.
…we already know the answer.

We get moving so fast to meet deadlines that we don’t usually take the time to test those assumptions and really engage with others. That can lead to more frustration, not to mention a loss of effectiveness.

I’m here to help with that.

Jayne B., Marketing Monsoon
I am not someone who usually participates in workshops and found myself doing so more that normal. I found value in seeing how others on the team process information and how to best address situations going forward.
Employee, Ciranda
During our team workshop, we learned about each other’s hard wiring which helped us understand how to better deal with each other … I enjoyed the brainstorming session for problem solving and realizing more about myself … The brainstorming session on problem solving was great and provided more insight about myself.
