Do you ever feel like your coworkers are speaking a different language? Or like the things you say aren’t the things they hear? It’s true that communicating with other humans can be hard sometimes: you could use the wrong words, or you could convey something unintended, or even let your real opinion slip out... and that’s without talking about body language and other nonverbal communication. Luckily, you can get better at it! In this talk you’ll learn about both high- and low-context communication, how the two differ, and how two very different people can have a conversation they both understand. You’ll learn what things humans communicate non-verbally, how to use this effectively, and you might even learn some things about listening. Come get a jump-start on the next conversation you have!
