The cornerstone of any effective team dynamic is great communication. From one-on-one check-ins between leaders and direct reports to regular all-hands meetings, everyone on a business team needs to have regular touchpoints to ensure they’re all on the same page and working toward the same objectives.
While establishing good communication practices can be challenging, especially in a remote or hybrid work environment, doing so is essential to keeping your business moving forward. Below, 15 members of Business Journals Leadership Trust discuss some of the key components of excellent team communication and how you can incorporate them into your everyday work.
What Beth had to say:
Be intentional in your communication, including by fostering good listening skills. Communication is as much about listening to team members as it is about talking with them. Leaders play a pivotal role in effective communication and collaboration. Setting intentions, as well as conveying objectives clearly, will help to ensure effective communication across the board.
