You May Not Be as Good at Workplace Communication as You Think…

communicateCommunication is so integral to the health of any workplace. Regardless of your profession, if there isn’t clear communication between a foreman and their worker, a surgeon and their nurse, or a project manager and their developer, there’s going to be issues.

I recently came across a Bustle article that outlines 13 different ways you can increase your communication skills at work, and I think all 13 are worth showcasing here. Some of these are SO SIMPLE! But that’s the point – they may be simple, but are you putting these skills into action every single day in your job?

Here’s a quick glimpse at their list:

  1. Learn to listen.
  2. Ask powerful questions.
  3. Ask for what you need.
  4. Slow down when you communicate.
  5. Really know your audience.
  6. Be thoughtful.
  7. Consider others’ work habits.
  8. Learn to focus on the conversation and don’t get distracted.
  9. Be mindful of your message delivery.
  10. Be straightforward with your message.
  11. Write your email first before including the recipient’s address in.
  12. Be mindful of your nonverbal communication.
  13. Try to not let your emotions get in the way.

I recommend you check out the insight provided on each tip over at the article.
