Supercharge Your Communication To
Accelerate Your Success
Every executive and team has experienced the frustration and cost of failed communication.
The High Cost Of Bad Communication
Even the most talented team members who are sincerely doing their best in the technical aspects of their jobs can be handicapped by:
- Lack of emotional safety which destroys the exchange of ideas
- Over-reliance on electronic communication creates misunderstandings
- Communication style conflicts bring frustration and avoidance
- False perceptions result in unnecessary conflict (open or hidden)
- Past negative patterns prevent team work
- Hidden agendas sabotage profitability
Each of these erode employee engagement and productivity in a different way.
When was the last time poor communication cost you or your company money?
Communication Is The Foundational Skill
Because effective communication underlies all other skills necessary to succeed in any job, if team members fall prey to the natural inclination to be persuasive and “win” rather than understand, or be defensive if they perceive they or their ideas are being attacked (whether they really are or not), conflict festers and profitability is compromised.
How could you and your team benefit from better communication?
There Is A Better Way
Imagine instead a workplace where high levels of trust and safety allow ideas to be expressed without fear and evaluated objectively without defensiveness or private agendas.
This is a workplace where people understand each other, and knowledge is transferred freely and listening to understand rather than arguing to win is the norm.
