Communication Effectiveness for Technical Experts and Help Desk Professionals
Technical subject matter experts seem to have their own language and humor that others fail to understand which is fine when technical experts communicate with other technical experts. Think of Sheldon on the Big Bang.
The challenge is that today’s workplace is a diverse mix of professionals with a wide range of knowledge and interest when it comes to technical information. When you work in a school setting helping parents, teachers, and students with their technical needs, you need to have good judgement and adapt your communication skills to meet the situation. You also serve as a role model for students.
