Communication in the workplace can be fraught.

Bringing together groups of people with different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives that shape how they communicate in a single workplace culture can create situations ripe for conflict and miscommunication.

When we approach each other with curiosity and obtain consent before giving feedback, we can shape workplace cultures where people feel witnessed, appreciated, and respected.

Erica Courdae and India Jackson are joining me for a discussion about creating space for difficult conversations in the workplace, the importance of behavior modeling from leaders, and how conscious communication deepens our relationships.

In 2018, Erica and India co-founded Pause on the Play: a community, podcast, and consultancy committed to guiding individuals in the process of defining their values, diversifying their networks, and disrupting systems of oppression. Combined they have provided training and consulting applied in businesses ranging from Christian Dior and Paul Mitchell School to Martha Beck Incorporated and Blue Cross Blue Shield. Their voices have been featured on podcasts, workshops, and online communities with a combined reach of over twenty thousand people.

If you’re ready to start having conscious conversations, tune in.
