Communication is the foundation of everything we do. It is also one of the biggest problems in the workplace today. We all complain of communication overload but seem to understand less than we ever have. Lack of clarity, pointless meetings and differences in communication styles are wreaking havoc on productivity and efficiency.
To get our messages across we need to learn how to communicate effectively once again – using simple language and the right medium. Effort is needed to make sure we understand the points of view and needs of our co-workers – learning how to truly ‘listen’ is an art many of us can master but most of us haven’t. Furthermore, we can transform performance with ‘constructive’ feedback.
