Fix these communication mistakes to stay on target

Fix these communication mistakes to stay on target | Exceptional Transcription & Business Solutions, Inc. | Scoop.it
. Stream of consciousness
If you’ve ever struggled to stay focused on a conversation, it’s likely because the conversation was boring, irrelevant or going in circles. For this reason, it’s important that leaders steer clear from unfocused stream of consciousness conversations. What is a stream-of-consciousness conversation? The conversation jumps around from subject to subject with little focus and no structure.

Why it’s Ineffective: The more you make employees work to understand your direction, the less likely they are going to give you good results.

How to improve: Before conversing with employees do some prep work and clearly define your end result -- out loud and to yourself. For example: By the end of this conversation, I want the team to complete the paperwork for the project and offer three possible solutions with price points for redesigning the client’s front lobby.

If your conversation includes a meeting, start with a clear agenda and stick to it. Whether your conversation is a one-on-one or a group meeting, start your conversation by stating your end result. End your conversation by reiterating your end result and putting dates on the calendar for follow-up.

2. Stuck on process
Confusion often occurs when you start the conversation talking about the process before defining the vision. I call this habit “getting stuck on the rock called HOW.”

For example, I was doing a facilitation for a client and realized that the room needed to be set up differently. Before defining my desired end result, I started talking about how to move the tables. Fortunately, an assertive colleague said, “Tell me your end result, then we can figure out how.”

Why it’s ineffective: It wastes time to talk about how before you have defined and agreed upon the end result.

Dave Clemons's curator insight, March 8, 11:28 AM
As a student and practitioner of leadership communication, I can attest to the tendency to stray off topic during a conversation. We are in a sound-byte world where ideas and messages are shared at a rapid pace. Sometimes such a quick exchange and following stream of consciousness yields poor results and can lead to the need for further clarification and redundant discussions. If you are a leader, slow down and focus your communication by keeping it to digestible chunks.
