  19. Basic Building Blocks for Professional Interactions
    Success in professional interactions is dependent upon a professional's ability to understand and use a number of key variables.

    Successful communications will occur more frequently when the professional demonstrates a working knowledge of the four key channels of communication.

    Successful professionals will have a working knowledge of the part culture plays in interactions, how the date of one's birth influences communication, and how technology impacts the overall process
  20. Four Key Channels of communication
    • 1. Gender
    • 2. Gestures

    • 3. how technology impacts the overall process
  24. What 5 Divergent and convergent processing strategies can be used to stimulate the work of employees
    • brainstorming
    • reframing
    • making it worse
    • problem expansion
    • pointed questions
  25. The three channels in which communication occurs
    • 1. being able to pinpoint individual differences in communications
    • 2. knowing techniques for maximizing interactions
    • 3. be able to apply your knowledge in individual and group settings is vital for maximizing professional interactions

    • generate new alternative solutions
    • choose a solution...then decide, who will do what, when.
  30. What the 5 steps of the creative process
    • 1. preparation - know the problem, motivate toward action
