Communication

Good communication is the lifeblood of business, however, talking about everyday or trivial matters is not the same as effectively communicating in a business environment. Many people are under the false impression that they are naturally good communicators because they talk to people every day both socially and professionally, yet everyone has seen something that has gone wrong at work because of some form of communication breakdown or misunderstanding.

People working together as a team are also much more effective than a single person spending all their time doing the same task. However, without good communication, the team can be as useless as if the task was never started, except that it has cost your business sometimes substantial amounts of time and money to achieve zero results.

Teams with good communication skills complete projects quicker and more efficiently than those without. They are generally more accurate in their work because effective communication allows them to understand their individual tasks better and the tasks undertaken by everyone else on the team.

Teams that fail to communicate effectively wind up wasting time and energy doing work that is not required because of a lack of understanding of what needs to be done. These team members also misunderstand each other and their personalities which can lead to conflict within the group and reduce the effectiveness of the team.

Interpersonal communication is more than what is said – the language used – it is also how it is said and the non-verbal messages sent through tone of voice, facial expressions, gestures and body language. By training your team how to communicate you will create a happier and more effective team which therefore reduces costs and leads to greater profitability within the business.
