“Happy Hour is the Best Hour”

Mark your calendar! Our last virtual happy hour was a success and people want more. If you missed the last one, here’s your chance to join us and learn a bit more about other team members. 

Our next happy hour is on Wednesday December 22, 2021.

We look forward to virtually hanging out with you! Expect an invitation from Natalia with more details.

La Comunicación: más efectiva = menos egoísta

Se han dicho muchas cosas sobre la Comunicación y su importancia en las empresas y organizaciones, pero hay una que a veces no suele mencionarse lo suficiente: La comunicación es más efectiva, mientras menos egoísta es.

Me explico: podemos preparar una exposición brillante, un informe completísimo, un artículo revelador, pero si nuestro público meta no lo entiende, o entiende una idea equivocada a partir de él, entonces nuestro trabajo fue poco efectivo. En la Comunicación humana es igual de importante lo que deseo expresar como lo que mi público entiende.

Hay veces en que para lograr esto, tendré que modificar mi idea original, que cambiar mis medios o modificar por completo mi estilo o herramientas de Comunicación, y eso suele exigir una cantidad considerable de humildad y capacidad de adaptación al medio en que vivimos. 

Es, a fin de cuentas, un ejercicio de equilibrio: encontrar el modo de poder compartir la información esencial sin comprometer el contenido, siendo flexibles ante las necesidades de la organización y del equipo que la recibirá.”

Written by: Lic. Jux Francisco Mascorro Hernandez  (Them/Elle)

Do you want to share some funny, interesting content or something that other collaborators might find useful? Email Natalia for more details of how you can share something and be featured in the next newsletter.

What is the Órale Award and why People Thrust does it?

At People Thrust we like to practice gratitude and recognition. This award is given to People Thrust’s collaborators when they have done something that goes above and beyond while representing People Thrust among peers, clients, and others. We recognize people that have represented our mission, vision, and/or core values one way or another. As a company, we are grateful to have such individuals in our team. Want to learn more?

Do you have someone you would like to nominate?  If so, you can nominate them here!

It’s Fun to Give Back! #moreThanIT
