Workplace Communication

In an era of Casual Fridays and work-from-home colleagues, how can you maintain effective office communication in a changing business climate?

We’ll steer you through changes in business etiquette, and help you successfully navigate through the new realities of workplace conflict and office politics.

When you’re finished explaining what must get done, ask employees, “What’s your first move?”
You can ask your staffers to do something, but that doesn’t mean they’ll do it
When speakers try to persuade you, they’ll usually go for credibility first.
Manage a team’s progress by asking workers at day’s end, “What did you do today?”
Starting the day with a dozen or more items may induce stress.
Change your position. Don’t slump deeper into your chair to get cozy.
When you’re making deals, what you say doesn’t matter as much as what you see and hear.
Awaken your senses to let your imagination run wild.
You want your employees to eliminate waste so that they operate more efficiently.
You want to motivate your team, so you think of new ways to pay them, reduce their travel and expand their benefits. While employees may appreciate your effort, you won’t necessarily produce the most bang for your buck.
