August 21, 2006
Hi,

August - Management for the Rest of Us

Keeping everyone informed at work is an ongoing, endless challenge. Sometimes it seems you talk more than you do, which for achievers, can be frustrating. But consider the reverse situation. Poor or non-existent communication is a common cause of work-place stress and dissatisfaction. Which situation would you prefer in your workplace?

Your communication efforts must keep one pace ahead of change. Clear communication channels enable people to understand what is happening, what is required from them, and feedback any ideas or concerns.

Here are two articles to develop your communication skills.

Effective managers understand basic business communication. It's not about whizzy powerpoint slides or wordy reports. Ask yourself these 7 Basic Business Communication Questions to freshen up your communication skills.

Developing effective communication skills can be fun - use the Building Blocks Communication Skill Game with your team and improve communication channels.

Warm Regards
