Commit To Communicating Clearly
I trust this week has started off productively and you have identified your future seers.
This weeks point to focus on is communicating clearly and building a clear communicating culture.
The lack of information and ‘transparent’ communications often leads your teams to assume or fear for the worst outcome.
Agree to create a culture that enables and ensures you communicate as clearly and kindly as possible.
As a manager and a leader you will be well aware that the fear and panic amongst your people, your teams and department is often when an important piece of information is not communicate to the group, it is not clear and often sent without second order effects considered.
Focus on speaking to your organisation and the managers around you to ensure you cut through poor communication and create an agreed internal principle you will communicate as clearly and as timely as possible to remove anxiety and fear around the company, particularly with the near future in mind.
This will reduce the amount of questions you will receive, you can encourage improving internal communications and reducing the internal chatter via instant messenger.
Until next week, focus on building clear communication templates you and your teams can use and agree as a company wide principle you will have clear communications across the business.
