Without a shared language, your commitments are meaningless.
When a co-worker tells you they’ll send you a revision “soon”—when do you expect it to arrive in your inbox?
When your team’s developer says they’ve “finished” the website migration—does that include bug & browser testing?
If you’re not sure how to answer these questions, you need to develop and document the language your team uses.
Team Toolbox: How To Develop A Shared Language For Your Team
Join Rowan Weismiller at Creative Pulse on Thursday, January 26th.
Rowan will show you how to improve your team’s communication by being conscious of the language your team is creating.
Rowan’s approach to team communications applies to freelancers and large agencies. Creatives of all backgrounds can use it to:
- Set clear expectations with less explanation (reduce frustration and disagreements)
- Reduce wasted time
- Deliver better work
Join us at /Archive (behind Steel Toad Brewery) for tasty beverages and snacks—and ditch the stress that comes from communicating with your team.
