Unexpected things are the greatest destroyer of consistency.
But life isn’t wrapped up in a neat bow.
It’s messy. Unpredictable. Less than ideal.
It took me a while to understand perfection wasn’t possible.
But you know the best weapon against stress and inconsistencies at work is?
Excellent communication between boss and employees and coworkers is the single best way to defeat employee burnout.
It seems so simple yet why don’t more companies do this?
Because communication requires empathy, organization, and teamwork— and that’s not always easy (especially if you aren’t hiring the right sort of people).
Excellent communication also improves your mental health.
Would love to get your thoughts on this topic!

Aaron Rodgers passed for 9.6 touchdowns per interception he had this season.
I’m not overly surprised by this stat as a Green Bay Packers fan.
But let’s look at the context of his achievement.
Rodgers faced adversity in 2020 like everyone else with the pandemic:
🏈 Uncertainty of work schedule
🏈 Lack of adequate preparation
🏈 Dealing with sudden changes
On top of that the Packers picked his apparent successor in the first round of the NFL draft.
The keys to his success are things transferable to any job:
🔷 Consistency in performance
🔷 Excellent communication with his boss (coach) and coworkers
🔷 Finding joy in work
🔷 Minimize major mistakes

Everyone learns and communications differently. Changing how you talk with others will be the difference between a positive or a negative experience.
Everyone learns and passes on information in different ways
You may be a thinker, director, socializer, or empathetic worker.
Or even a combination of those communication styles.
🤔I am more of a thinker. I need to understand the process step by step.
Clarity and accuracy are prioritized over speed or small talk.
🗣Directors—I know I need to talk faster and limit my explanations to a high level.
😃Socializers— it’s important to chat about the topic they are talking about.
❤️ Empathetizers—discuss feelings more so be open to utilize that type of language when interacting with empaths.
❓Which of the four communication styles fits you best?
❓How have you tailored your communication to someone with a different communication style?
