  Dr. Stephanie Lopez, Industrial-Organizational Psychologist

A surprisingly simple way to transform interpersonal communication within organizations

Do you ever sit in ineffective meetings and notice that you hold back from sharing your opinion? Do you come across too abrasive even though you’re just “saying it like it is?” Do you ever struggle to communicate openly with others in your organization? Do you ever hold back what you really want to say or find yourself softening or sugar-coaching what you want to say? 

 In this session with Dr. Stephanie Lopez, you’ll learn:

  1. A simple model that highlights the difference between being brutally honest and truly open 
  2. The three most common ineffective approaches we use in interpersonal communication
  3. The number one thing that holds us back from communicating effectively 
  4. A framework you can use to improve the way you communicate with others

Stephanie Lopez is an Industrial-Organizational Psychologist, Facilitator, and Executive Coach who is an expert in the application of the science of psychology to organizations. Stephanie specializes in working with women and specifically helps leaders become more authentic and self-aware, which enables greater resilience, stamina, and flexibility in the face of demanding and difficult challenges at work and in their personal lives. She’s known for creating a humbling and exciting coaching environment where she gently edges clients closer to insights. Stephanie transforms the way individuals, teams, and organizations function by investigating the root causes of issues teams are experiencing and building their capacity to hold crucial conversations and address interpersonal issues when they arise.

In this role, she focused on building and developing leadership capacity to effectively lead through many changes, including a center-wide reorganization at Kennedy Space Center, the centralization of several Human Capital functions, and agency-wide transformations.
