I believe everyone can agree that, generally, if a person crosses another person’s boundary, it would be great if one person could just tell a person professionally in order to stop the problem from growing.  If you asked an HR professional for their honest opinion, they would probably say that many of their issues they deal with could have been avoided if the parties involved had a conversation about the issue first. Easier said than done many would say.

Here are 2 ideas:


  • Practice constructing a dialog with someone, making it safe to raise your issue(s) (Breakview Action lesson)
  • Build rapport with colleagues, reduce misunderstandings & increase productivity (Breakview Action lesson)



Some communication just doesn’t come naturally. Assertiveness can take practice.


Could you or your team use a lesson on strategies for building rapport?
