In my last job I did not have a good communication with my boss from the beginning and it affected our relationship, our effectiveness, the work priorities and also created some wrong perceptions of each other; now with training I realized about many factor that there were present but we did not realized such as the fact that he did not really knew (neither did I) how to do "one on one meetings", therefore is was not considered as important, eventually when the communication was already damaged, we came up with a sort of agreement to meet every monday for updates but not having an effective road map of what to achieve, how set the priorities, and how to follow up. At the end of the day, it affected my performance and after some months I ended up being fired. This training has helped me to understand better the situation, identify what we did right and what we did wrong, now I am better prepared to my next job and to practice the learnings. Thank you.Read Less
