Effective Communication in the Workplace

Video Blog


A clear, effective communication skill is one of the best attributes a person can develop. It equips you to be successful professionally and personally.  By communication, we mean stating your needs clearly and listening to others with the intention of fully understanding what they are trying to say. It is a “two-way” street.

Can you identify with this example?  It is the job of leaders to go to the unknown and find out what’s there.  Asking employees for honest feedback on a regular basis will provide insight on how they are responding to any changes that are being made.  Actively listening and being prepared to take action will help you avoid having disengaged employees.  A recent Gallop poll estimated that disengaged employees costs the U.S. between $450 billion to $550 billion.

Some questions to consider:
  • Do you take the time to really listen to the leaders on your team?
  • How do you encourage your team to connect with each other personally and professionally?
  • In times of conflict do you encourage your team to communicate clearly, clarify their concerns and state the desired outcome?
