If you’re trying to communicate better at work, perhaps you could take a lesson from your kids.

Harvard University instructor Rebecca Rolland teaches techniques to communicate more effectively with children in ways that let them foster relationships with less conflict.

She says the same techniques can be used in the workplace, as she explains in this Bizgnus Interview podcast.

Ms. Rolland says quality communication — something she terms "rich talk" — can help build needed communication skills.

Part of this, she says, is the other half of communication:  listening.

“We’d like to think we’re good listeners, but we often have a point in our minds, we have out argument pre-formulated,” says Ms. Rolland.

She is the author of the new book, “The Art of Talking With Children,” (HarperOne, March 2022), which details “rich talk” and listening.
