Key Take-Aways From This Episode:
– Did you know that the Addiction to Being Right is just like any other physical addiction? It originates with the introduction of dopamine, the neurotransmitter responsible for pleasure, because we like being right. We continue wanting (and needing) to be right because we like that dopamine hit.
– What the future of communication looks like and how the various generations in the work force will shape that change.
– Learn how to create trust and safety in team and other collaborative spaces.
– The importance of process planning and standard operating procedure creation in your business regardless of team size (or even if it is just you)
