We get our hands dirty with data.

Think together.
Work better.

Work Better Day is an experience-driven program where experts, researchers, and every-day heroes share their stories, inspire ideas in others, and influence the conversation around what it means to work better and provide an atmosphere that will foster engagement and learning, but also one where attendees can walk away with the ability to impact others within their organizations.

Talk is cheap.  Until it costs you everything. Voice. Email. Text. Slack. Video calls. GitHub. Intranets.How many languages do we speak every day? If rapid technology evolution wasn’t enough, then the generational gap should be: with five generations in the workplace, that could mean your colleagues are the same age as your children (or your parents – yikes). So what are the rules of communication, and who makes them?  How can you leverage communication skills to build mutuality among your team, drive creativity, and inspire confidence in yourself and others?  Look at your own interpersonal communication pieces of a puzzle that must be put together every day when negotiating, problem-solving, self-promoting, resolving conflict or simply collaborating with a colleague. It’s what we need to get work done!
This year,  Work Better Day is all about you… and how you communicate!  We will examine your individual styles, needs and wants around interpersonal communication and explore how to communicate more effectively by digging into the dynamic of human interaction and your specific needs.  There will be a workshop on Visual Communication, allowing you to create your own common language, and an investigation into The Enneagram, what it means and how it can affect the way we view the world, ourselves and others. Join OPX and the minds at Gallup to explore how you can Work (and communicate) Better!
