Try to hold company gatherings at least once a quarter, and maintain a culture of encouragement and growth that will inspire employees and garner employee loyalty.
The structure of an organization is efficient only if it encourages clear communication across company lines, according to the Free Management Library. Departments must be able to speak to each other to ensure that day-to-day operations go smoothly. Employees must feel as though they can speak to managers to help employee development and to help resolve conflict. Managers need to have access to the executive team for clarification on important company policies and issues. Decision makers at all levels need to be clearly identified, according the Bridgespan Group business consultants. More important issues may need the president or chief executive's approval, such as major vendor decisions or product concerns. Managers at all levels must have authority to make decisions on issues that directly affect their departments or groups. A well-defined escalation policy can efficiently move issues up to higher levels of management, if necessary.
What Effects Communication
Many times the communication is blocked. Noise barriers, last minute communication or a given deadline may put too much pressure on the receiver and may lead to aggrieved feelings and stress. Poor choice of channel can also be causative to the misapprehension of the message. Any physical distractions such as, telephone interruptions or walk-in visitors can close down face-to-face communication process. Communication may be chaotic or blocked if the channels are not clear. Out of the professional jealousy in the closed channels, the messages may be indistinct. Role overload occurs when individuals receive more information than they are capable of processing, the result may be confusion or some important information may be laid aside. Semantic barriers are due to misinterpretations of words and symbols. The wrong choice of words or improper use of punctuation marks in written communication can sometimes alter the meaning and convey different message from what has been intended.
In order that a balanced movement of diverse activities as well as a coordinated structure may be formed in the workplace, it is necessary to establish effective communication. Effective communication involves transmitting and understanding the information existed in the atmosphere of openness and conviction. It is very important for a management to recognize and overcome the barriers to effective communication. This would involve diagnosing and analyzing situations, designing proper messages, assisting receivers of messages in correct decoding and providing an efficient feedback system. The receiver should be given the opportunity to ask for clarifications and answers to any questions about the message. Good listening skills lead to better understanding and good relationship amidst colleagues.
