Future pro-manchester: Maintaining Positive Communication with iMA
Future pro-manchester is dedicated to promoting and developing young talent within Greater Manchester’s business community. We aim to help young professionals develop new business skills, build relationships and network with like-minded people through a variety of events.
As we face the prospect of working from home for the foreseeable future, it is important that we maintain positive communication with our colleagues, friends and family. But not everyone has the same communication style as the next person and communicating with someone in a way they’re not comfortable with can unknowingly cause them stress.
iMA is a simple, yet powerful behavioural and communication tool that you can use aid your understanding of yourself and others, enabling you to better modify and adapt your communication.
The universal language of iMA is a simple way of observing and understanding the differences in people, then connecting with them on their wavelength. When this happens communication, trust, understanding, co-operation and sales go up, and stress and tension go down.
In this session, Ashley Boroda will be giving a quickfire masterclass on iMA, after which you’ll get an opportunity to put the tool and all you learn to use in a virtual speed networking.
The session will also include a 15 minute networking breakout exercise giving you the opportunity to make some of those all important connections we've been missing out on during lockdown.
