Communication is the cornerstone of any relationship and it is expected that leaders will build and maintain relationships at different levels. Accordingly, this article presents ten tips to bridge the gap – improving your efficiency.
- Know how you communicate.
In addition to understanding how you communicate, it is important to let others know how you communicate. Tell people who work with you how to best work. Do you have an open communication method? Do you approve the practice? Communication is better when they know it. They should not guess.
- Eliminate obstacles.
Obstacles hinder your ability to communicate effectively. Identify and eliminate them wisely [cultural diversity, language, space, jargon, perception, distraction, expression, personal behavior, too much information, etc.].
- Work around.
Seek understanding and understanding. Often, we stop communication by pushing our ideas and ignoring the ideas of others.
Listening is easier said than done. Like many of you, I am thinking about what to say next, or my idea is to deal with five things at the same time. slower. Give you full attention.
- ask questions.
Questioning by great leaders is undoubtedly stupid. Asking a question is better than evaluating your understanding.
- keep in touch.
Walk around and make sure things are going. Survey the land! At the same time, be approachable. An unfriendly or cold place will alienate your troops.
- Get feedback.
Use constructive criticism. How will you grow? It is also important to seek feedback on processes and policies, as well as products and services. Take advantage of suggestion boxes or short online surveys.
- Maximize the meeting.
Most people think that meetings are a waste of time because they lack structure and meaning. Don't waste time and things that don't matter. Instead, turn them into conversations that solve problems. It is also important to stick to the task and stick to the agenda. By the way, there is always an agenda.
- Express yourself with confidence and confidence.
If you try to show yourself confidence and confidence, then ask for help. In this respect, everyone has no talent; but you can hone this valuable skill by joining Toastmaster, attending classes, attending seminars or working with coaches. Remember, your professional image is very convincing.
- Let people know.
One way is to provide regular updates in writing [via email or memo]. Now I don't suggest that people overwhelm people through lengthy communication. Keep it short. Some communication is better than no communication.
