Organizations are moving towards cloud / digital records. Governments are creating and updating new compliance and regulations as a result of everyone’s personal data being safe and secure.
The digital landscape is changing rapidly
And this is no small task. Global data center traffic is expected to triple and by 2021, it is estimated to be 20.6 zettabytes a year. One zettabyte is equal to one trillion gigabytes. This equates to 36,000 years of watching HD video, or streaming the entire list of Netflix more than 3,000 times. Or, in more visual terms, if gigabyte was your cup of morning tea, a zetabyte would be the Great Wall of China.
We have already seen this in the UK with changes in the Data Protection Act and the advent of GDPR. In addition, there are potentially hundreds of other rules that you have to meet. And it is not only to work locally in the UK, but also to work in Europe or the rest of the world.
Mix that with the shift to cloud computing, the speed of change, and the cost of not meeting these regulatory requirements. You can potentially spend a lot of time managing compliance and a misleading obstacle course of rules.

Listen carefully to the person speaking until they understand
Hearing is an active process that you do to ensure that you understand what the speaker is saying. It is also important to respond appropriately to what they are saying.
Be fair while listening. Remember that a natural part of speaking involves stagnation, so leave any questions, explanations or comments until the speaker has finished. Use verbal and non-verbal cues to show to listen actively.
Do not forget to take advantage of technology. Both Skype and PowerPoint now have live captions and subtitles. This will make it easier for those who are hard of hearing, in a noisy office, or to actively speak or speak another language.
