THE NEED FOR EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION

Manager communication is a topic that needs much more attention than it currently gets. The way managers communicate with employees has a significant impact on how employees feel about their job, teammates, leaders and the company they work for.

Effective communication skills are the most in-demand skills a manager can have. Inefficient manager communication leads to employee disengagement and low productivity.

 

One of the skills needed is Active Listening.  Listening is a conscious activity which requires attention. Rather than waiting to speak, you need to listen attentively to fully understand the other person.

Remember, there is no point in asking a question if you do not intend to listen carefully to the answer!

Another skill needed is Structured and Clear communication.  The winner in every business competition is always whoever communicates the most clearly. Whether you're dealing with employees, bosses, colleagues, or customers, your ability to get what you want hinges on how well you talk and write.

This program will equipped managers with effective communication practices that build more effective and efficient teams and organizations.
