This Communication module of Stewart, Cooper & Coon’s consultative resources is most effective when used in conjunction with these other modules:
The best practices in organizational communication dynamics are an indispensable tool in helping your business to succeed. To respond proactively to new situations, your firm and its representative individuals must be able to communicate directives to your employees, and conversely be able to obtain honest, helpful feedback from them.
Lead by Example
As with any other sector of business, effective communication starts at the top. For executives, managers, and leaders to lead by example not only models effective communication behaviors for your employees, it also shows that you are willing to exercise the best communication practices, as well.
Effective communication isn’t something that happens accidentally. It happens because you, your managers/leaders and your employees make a conscious decision to employ the best practices in organizational communication.
Encourage Enthusiasm and Respect
Do you have enthusiastic employees who are free and safe to communicate with their colleagues and management/leadership? And in an effective manner? Respected employees feel that their opinion and insights are valued and have no trouble sharing them.
Does your organization experience unnecessary and burdensome communication? If so, can you isolate it to specific levels? Encourage employees to always consider whether the information that they are communicating is both relevant to the topic and significant. Focusing in communication will help ensure that meaningful ideas aren’t missed at the expense of louder, less important matters.
