Who is this client?
Ivonne is a European manager who suspected her communication style was too direct and often aggressive. Her tone sounded hostile, resulting in negative relationships with her colleagues. She found that the culture in Canada was different, with less feedback given. As a Human Resources manager, Ivonne has to:
- Oversee recruiting, interviewing, compensation and management of employees
- Serve as a consultant and guide employees through any workplace conflicts
- Handle staffing issues, such as mediating disputes and directing disciplinary procedures
- Prepares employees for assignments by establishing and conducting orientation and training programs.
What were her goals?
Our communication coach worked with Ivonne to use the appropriate intonation to demonstrate a variety of intentions (assertiveness, openness). Ivonne needed to learn to use the proper wording for different contexts to showcase HR skills like teamwork and problem-solving. Ivonne also needed to learn to identify body language that demonstrates aggression and use simple body language in various situations.
