This presentation covers appropriate social interaction in the workplace. There will be a discussion on the importance of code switching, and the importance of thinking about who is receiving your message. Appropriate social interaction will be broken into three sections: 1. Colleague to colleague Interactions. How can you speak to your colleague about the project you are working on? What are appropriate content for emails? This section will include examples of what are socially acceptable greetings and sign offs, strategies for how to determine what information to be included in the email, and what are appropriate topics to speak with colleagues about both in person, over text, email, and over the phone. 2. Communication to management. There will be examples of email greetings, sign offs, and how to communicate to your boss efficiently. There will be examples of appropriate communication and how to ask for help when needed. 3. Communication to the layperson. How do you speak to someone who is not in your field? There will be concrete suggestions for how to change the language you use when speaking to someone who is not in your field. We will discuss the importance of readability, reducing the use of jargon, and how to feel comfortable when talking about your product.
