How To Create Effective Communication in Your Workplace - Finnegan Pierson - Blog

How To Create Effective Communication in Your Workplace

Effective communication can be imperative in your workplace. It can help distinguish between an incompetent and exceptional leader. Friendly conversations with your workers can foster a peaceful and healthy work environment and eliminate misunderstandings. They can also let a team complete its assignments professionally and quickly. With open communication, you can be surprised how meeting targets can be easier. Here are a few tips that can help managers create open lines of communication at their workplace.


Encourage Feedback

Managers often make the mistake of talking and walking away. It is always wise to allow feedback so that you can assess how effective your communication style can be. Feedback can help you know if your message was understood.


Be Appreciative

Managers should not take their workers’ effort for granted. Instead, they should appreciate their workers for their exceptional achievements. A simple courtesy could be the only thing your workers expect from you. Workers who feel valued often work together to boost their productivity.


Be Humorous

Being friendly and using jokes when communicating with your workers can help pass the message effectively. The practice has often proved useful in dousing tension at the workplace. It can work magic when the atmosphere seems tense and unfriendly. However, managers are often not stand-up comedians. So, they should avoid overusing jokes when engaging their subordinates.


Use Presentations

Most workers tend to grasp messages easily when sounds and images are used for demonstration. For example, your team can refer to a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation highlighting how to form an LLC to understand the procedure well.


Use The Appropriate Tone

A word or phrase can mean a different thing when the speaker uses a different tone. Managers should strive to use the appropriate tone when communicating with their workers to avoid misunderstanding. Using an inappropriate tone can also discourage team members and hamper their productivity.


Listen To Your Team

Communication in the workplace is often intended to be two-way traffic. Managers should not just lecture their workers because they are the leader. Instead, they should encourage open communication and sharing of ideas.


Display Seriousness and Confidence

Managers can ensure that their juniors don’t take them for granted by being sober and confident. Team members are likely to treat communication with a manager who doesn’t seem confident with disregard or disdain.


Create a Receptive Atmosphere

A receptive atmosphere at the workplace can allow for effective communication. A tense work environment can make it hard for workers to understand or retain the message being communicated.


Use Constructive Criticism 

Virtually every manager wants his or her team to do its best. Managers should strive to ensure that their comments are friendly and that their juniors understand the message they are trying to communicate. You can criticize your workers in different humorous ways.


Pay Attention To Your Body Language

Body language can be more powerful than verbal communication. Leaders should observe how their juniors act when communicating to avoid misunderstanding. The behavior of your workers can tell whether they are afraid of meeting the deadline or not.


Schedule Open Meetings

Open meetings can create an enabling environment for managers to communicate their with their team. Open meetings can not only allow team members to hear what their manager is saying but also feel and see it. Public meetings are arguably one of the best ways to communicate with a team.


Communication can make a significant difference in the productivity and morale of the workplace. Encouraging feedback can help leaders measure how effective their message was. Open meetings and using appropriate tone can also foster a healthy and peaceful environment. Excellent communication can also set an exceptional manager apart from the rest. Managers should use constructive criticism and create a receptive environment when communicating with their teams. Workers are less likely to take a message of a confident manager for granted. Managers should not just instruct and talk to their workers but listen to them as well.
