In this interview, Dave Heisey joins MBN's Jeffrey Mosher to discuss communication and how to become memorable manager. If you pull your team together for a meeting to discuss an important initiative, policy, or customer issue, do you ever feel like you haven’t made as big of an impact as you would like? After the next weekend, does it seem your employees may not have been in that same meeting?
Attention spans these days seem to be shorter and shorter - as we’re constantly bombarded with distractions coming from texts, tweets, emails, on-line videos, and other sources. So as a leader, how do we stand out from all the noise and help our employees focus their attention on the most important work within our organization? When you speak to your team, your message needs to be simple and clear - no more than 1 or 2 items on the agenda. You need to make your presentation entertaining. And there are four key ways that our memories work, so if you tap into those, you give yourself the best chance of creating a memorable experience for those involved.
