With the move online, we could just begrudgingly endure the meetings and emails. Or, we could build trust, inspire team cohesion, and drive astonishing impact. When we move from in-person work to virtual (or hybrid) work, our communication frequency, structure, participation, and even content change. We risk wasting time in misunderstanding, false-agreement or rework. The Four Discussion Disciplines (4DDs - integrity, courtesy, inclusion and translation) are practices teams can use on email, in meetings, or in posts to address this. In this session, Katrina Pugh (Columbia University, New York, NY) and Chivonne Algeo (Monash University, Melbourne, Australia) will discuss how to lead the 4DDs with your teams, across your organization, and with partners to improve meaning-making and relationship-building.
