We have many different ways we communicate with our staff. We may verbally communicate, we may physically communicate by standing taller or walking with purpose or we may non-verbally communicate by using gestures and facial expressions. However, we communicate with our staff, here are a few items to keep in mind when communicating:
1. Communicate with respect
2. Be aware of the messages we are communicating
3. Be clear and coherent in the message that we deliver
4. Communicate consistent messages throughout
5. Deliver appropriate messages
Good communication can be a difficult skill and it is one that requires us to practice often. It is easy for our nonverbal messages to dictate a conversation in the wrong direction. When you take the time to communicate appropriately and with respect you will deliver a message that is consistent with that message.
Great teams take effort. Take time to work on your practice regularly to build quality communication and strengthen your results. For more information and to read other articles, please visit us at www.saltdpm.com.
