A year of improved communication

During the course of any year, businesses have challenges with communication.  Great communication between customers, vendors and employees are all critical to the success of the organization.

When was the last time you had a meaningful conversation with your key employees?  Not just a regular routine meeting but a meeting of the minds in real conversation?

With all the technological connections – email, text, smartphone, webinar etc. the opportunity to have face to face dialogue is becoming more and more obsolete.  To some degree the upcoming generations are being cultured to this absences of personal communication.

The challenge is – real business still happens face to face and belly to belly.  If the skills of dialogue and communication are not used regularly and effectively then they begin to erode. They do not deliver the quality they previously provided.

There is a place for technological tools for moving the business forward.  Person to person contact is still a key way to tap into what is really happening in your business.

This week, put a plan together to set aside some quality time to talk to your team.  Get to know what is going on with them and your business.  Take some time to talk to your customers, vendors and even the competition.

This event of dialogue will bring you many insights as to the status of your organization and its future needs.  Collect the details and plan on formulating them into themes or categories to explore in more detail.  Once captured, give your self the commitment to not just capture the insights but to do something with them to improve your business. The result will be to improve communication in 2016.

Not comfortable in starting the dialogue? Give us a call at (313) 527-7945 and talk (communicate) with JKL Associates.  We would be more than happy to come visit you face to face and talk.
