42. Creating Agreements vs. Expectations

42. Creating Agreements vs. Expectations

Today’s episode is focused on creating agreements versus expectations when it comes to communication. I talked about ways to open up communication in episode 41 called Communicating with Impact. One of the options to open up communication in that episode was creating agreements vs expectations. (I will attach the link in the notes.) I wanted to share more about that with you here today. 


In this episode:

  • 86% of employees and executives blame the lack of effective collaboration and communication as the leading causes for errors in the workplace. A review of the top reasons communication doesn’t happen in the workplace.
  • The high percentage of people impacted by the stress and anxiety caused by unclear communication and how to address it.
  • How new messaging platforms like Slack and Teams can impact communication – there are positives and negatives.
  • The step-by-step process of how to create agreements vs expectations in a better way and make it effective and productive for you and your team.
  • The importance of understanding someone else’s experience when communicating.
  • Happy Holidays to everyone! Thank you for supporting the podcast! 🙂
