There’s a new report out about the state of miscommunication at work from Quantum Workplace. The findings are interesting.
81% of employees say miscommunication happens frequently, but only 50% say it’s their fault the miscommunication occurred.
47-51% of respondents agreed that employees always or almost always speak their minds, which means 49-53% of employees are not speaking their minds at work.
How do leaders create a culture that promotes and supports open dialog and increases each team member’s responsibility for the outcomes they are getting?
We have found learning to understand and speak the language of different behavioral types to be very helpful in reducing the amount of miscommunication that occurs at work. Here are just a few of the free DISC and Motivator resources our team has created that may be helpful to you and your team:
START HERE: Ask each member of your team on a scale from 1 to 10 how effective they think communication is:
- Among the team members
- Within the organization
- From the top down
And, what is one thing they think would improve communication where you work?
The answers you get may open a dialog that could be helpful in finding out where to begin.
If you or any member of your team have not taken the DISC or Motivators assessment, let me know and we can provide you with the information to complete one. [email protected] or 540.776.9219.
