Effective communication is a skill; develop it today with dedicated communication team building games.
Business communication is carried out in a variety of mediums from face-to-face meetings, presentations to email and messaging. The manner of communication must be appropriate to the medium. Communication is a two-way process. Active and empathetic listening is as critical to communication as talking or conveying a message. In this way understanding other people’s points of view are key to improving the quality of relationships.
Communication is a skill and can be easily built on by encouraging team building activities in the workplace. Below are a few ways to improve effective communication at home, avoiding misunderstanding and frustration.
Speak clearly and concisely in a manner that is well suited to your audience. Your message should flow and the overall tone should be consistent and relevant to the topic. Ensure that your message conveys a concrete picture of what you are trying to explain and that it does not contain anything that might confuse a listener. Your message should be comprehensive and complete, fully informing your audience and enabling them where applicable to take relevant action.
Having a clear tone and body language are also important to effective communication. Be aware of posture and voice inflexion. Be mindful of the way in which you pose questions, ensuring they are delivered in a positive manner which builds trust and encourages discussion. Experiential learning team building activities and business games help in modelling effective communication.
Communication in any workplace is essential to have a successful business as it will increase productivity and maintain a strong relationship with other employees. Having a trusting group of employers will increase the output and morale of the workplace along with ensuring effective communication with managers and customers.
