This webinar will explore the different ways in which we communicate and share information, revealing how communication is constantly evolving and what this means for organisations as new and increasingly diverse generations of people enter the world of work. Hybrid and virtual working present new challenges for inclusive communication, so we’ll consider communication styles across a range of differences including culture, age, and neurodivergence, sharing practical tools to help make communication in the workplace more inclusive.Communicating through conflict can create obstacles and tensions that, if not managed, can diminish feelings of belonging. We’ll share a couple of tools to support these conversations, to help make them more positive and productive, by reframing conflict as an opportunity for healthy challenge. We’ll close by summarising a framework for better communication, and then open the session for Q&A.
