AQR Spark - Small acts, big impacts
Introduction to Microethnography: Small actions, big impacts. By Sae Oshima, PhD Senior Lecturer of Corporate & Marketing Communications Bournemouth University
Have you ever walked out of a team brainstorm, wondering: what is it about us that makes us click so well? Have you ever left a client meeting, thinking: thats a very different outcome than I was expecting? This session will highlight how your micro-actions in conversation can have a big impact on outcomes.
We communicate using a range of sources: some are obvious, like language, whilst others dont get as much attention, like gestures, facial expressions, and posture. Yet all of these things may help (or hinder) us as we strive to achieve our goals; many professional outcomes can be boiled down to the little things you do each day without knowing it!
The session will be run by Dr. Sae Oshima, who is a trained microethnographer of social interaction. The strength of her research lies in its rigorous method, namely unpacking behaviour and outcomes through micro, sequential and multimodal analysis of video-recorded natural interactions.
This method also known as conversation analysis is increasingly recognised in various disciplines, and has led her to various leading roles in academic research, as well as collaboration with professionals and the wider public in the U.S., Denmark, Japan and the U.K.
As well as being inspired by Saes research findings, youll emerge from the session equipped with techniques to tweak your own micro behaviour to help you achieve your goals.
There will be refreshments to enjoy at the session.
