Working Conversations Episode 43:
5 High Performance Communication Habits for Remote Workers
When we think of habits, we typically think of our bad habits, don’t we?
Like many these days, you might be developing habits in your work-from-home environment — habits that keep you motivated or habits that are slowly burning you out or are risking your health!
Last week, I was lamenting to my husband that my back hurt as a result of slouching at my desk, and this my friend, is a bad habit.
But, whether you realize this or not, all habits are not bad ones. You can develop simple high-performance habits to supercharge your effectiveness, strengthen your relationships, and ultimately get your work done better, faster, and with greater satisfaction.
And in this episode, we’re going to take a look at five high-performance communication habits for remote workers. You’ll also get a sneak peek of what I refer to as Janel’s Rule of Three on how to clean up miscommunication quickly.
These communication behaviors can be habituated easily and directly, whether you work in a small group or a large company and whether in remote and hybrid settings. They’ll probably save you time as well!
You might also listen to this podcast each week and add it to your work-from-home habits. It’s a short episode, packed full of good ideas.
So, listen here or wherever you listen to podcasts. I’ll be cheering you on as you develop high-performance communication habits in your work life.
