Keys to Better Communication | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

"At times we take the ability to communicate for granted. We’ve been capable of speaking for most of our lives, so shouldn’t conversation flow easily? Yes and no. Talking is simple. Communicating is complex. Talking is making noise. Communicating is connecting with someone. While most people can speak, not everyone can communicate. Therein lies the challenge."

Claudia DeSalvo's curator insight, August 16, 2013 2:55 PM

Communication is key, especially when it comes to giving feedback. Talking at people isn't as effective as taking the time to build a structure for relationships.

 

Understanding is a must, especially when it comes to building trust and engagement. Do your employees know what they need to do to be successful? Giving them adequate resources is a crucial part in ensuring top quality results from them. The article gives a good question to ask yourself:


“What is the most important thing these employees want to know, what is the best way to encourage dialogue and how would they be most comfortable sharing input?”

 

After taking the employees into consideration, think of good ways to get them to share their ideas. This will be an opening for formal[printed] and informal[a quick convo] feedback. The feedback should be respected by both parties, and should be responded to in a timely manner. This makes it so that the employee feels valued. After exchanging feedback, you should continue regularly sharing ideas. Communication is best when its two-way.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, August 19, 2013 6:40 AM

Great scoop Claudia.  The only thing I would add to the article is that the supervisor should ensure to request additional feedback from her/his direct reports, in addition to getting feedback from established organiazation channels like suggestion boxes, etc.  

 

The reason this is so important is becuase direct report have great specific insight that can help the supervisor learn even more from the feedback.  

 

Frrom the article:

 

Act on feedback – Highly engaged employees are enthused about their organization and believe they can positively influence its success. Acting on employee feedback and highlighting the impact employees make is a strong engagement builder. Be sure that all employees know how their colleagues’ suggestions or ideas are being implemented.


Regularly sharing results and requesting additional feedback creates predictable, consistent two-way communication that encourages employees to take ownership and understand their ideas are valued by the organization.
