Workplace Communication

How effective is your workplace communication?

Problems with workplace communication are regularly regarded as a major organisational issue in employee surveys. Effective communication can be nearly impossible to achieve when organisations don’t focus on improving the quality of workplace conversations. A global survey has rated workplace miscommunication as the Number One cause of workplace inefficiency. The specific scores for the USA, UK, Australia, Asia and Canada were:

  • USA 53%
  • United Kingdom 50%
  • Australia 46%
  • Asia 48%
  • Canada 28%

Translated into bottom line costs, these inefficiencies run into billions of dollars.

Instead of the ‘rumour-mill’ and gossip dominating the conversations within your organisation and causing massive inefficiencies, your people can benefit from participating in strategic conversations and learning critical skills for enhanced workplace communication.

These include:

  • Learning how to dialogue
  • Learning how to slow down from ‘Jumping to conclusions’ that are the root of a significant amount of workplace miscommunication
  • Understanding how each person views the world has a significant effect on how they interpret information that is presented to them

Do the math yourself. What would a 5% improvement in workplace efficiency do for your bottom line? What would a 10% improvement do?
