The Power of Authentic Communication to Resolve Conflict in Teams with Roxanne Derhodge and Charmaine Hammond

Authentic Communication Quote: “If conflict seems to be happening, you’ll be so well served and so will the people experiencing this if it’s addressed early on.”  Charmaine Hammond

Creating an atmosphere of trust and authenticity for your team is never an easy task, but it’s especially difficult now in these unprecedented times.  With virtual workspaces and the uncertainty as to what the future of many businesses and workplaces will look like as we move toward “returning to work”, leaders have to work harder than ever to facilitate effective communication and resolve conflict in their teams whether it’s online or in person.  On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome Conflict Management Expert, Charmaine Hammond to share ideas on how leaders can create a respectful and peaceful work environment through authentic communication.

Charmaine is a Certified Speaking Professional (1 of 1200 speakers in the world to hold this designation) is a highly sought-after business keynote and workshop speaker, entrepreneur, author and educator who teaches and advocates the importance of developing trust, healthy relationships and collaboration in the workplace.
