Eileen's Lesson
Happy summer!
Communications are a great thing when they work.
We often think a conversation is the most simple and direct route to communicate our message. However, sometimes, that isn’t always the case.
A number of years ago, my son came up to me and told me about a video he watched at a friend’s house. He said that it was really funny, and wanted to show me. I asked him where it was, and he said (at least I thought he said) “U2”. U2? I didn’t know they made funny music videos. Nonetheless, I went to the U2 website and my son was not pleased. Let’s just say, he was a bit frustrated. A week or so passes and my son comes home with a post-it note, on it was www.youtube.com
Has that ever happened to you? Sometimes, communications in families, companies, organizations, you name it, can simply break down, and we need an intermediary to help smooth things along. Obviously, they are not as easily solved with a post-it note, but you would be surprised how an outside perspective can help smooth things along. 
As always, The HR Team is here to help you with the myriad of people issues that occur in the workplace. So feel free to contact us to discuss.

The HR Team's Lisa Boss and Dwan Keith recently shared the certification process and teachings for their DEI certification from the University of South Florida at Tampa. This is one example of how our team incorporates continuing education and knowledge share.
