The Psychology of Communication: Styles and Behaviours
July 8, 2015 @ 17:30 - 19:00 SAST
The number one cause of failed projects is poor communication. Deon’s research validates what Agilists have been saying for over a decade: “Individuals and Interactions over Process and Tools”. When all the world’s knowledge is literally at our fingertips, trust is not only earned by what you know, but also by how you communicate what you know. In this interactive, thought-provoking talk Deon will show how to make your message land when people differ in communication styles and behaviours. Deon will also share some insight about communication styles across cultures – something we have to deal with as we scale Agile across geographically dispersed teams.
