Overview of the webinar

Effective communication is an essential ingredient for team productivity and cohesiveness. As the manager or leader of a team, you can’t force them to work well together or expect that everyone on the team will buy-in to ground rules that you establish in your own. 

It’s better – and more effective - for leaders to encourage team members to collaborate with one another to identify and agree on communication expectations for the group to work together. After all, people are much more likely to buy in to expectations when they have a say in what they are rather than having them dictated. Not only that, teams are much more likely to be cohesive when the members work together to come up with mutually agreeable solutions. 

Do you see the benefits, but aren’t sure where to get started? This training session will provide you with the insights you need to effectively inspire your team to work collaboratively to establish their own communication ground rules. 

Attend this informative session and discover how to encourage employees to work collaboratively together to establish ground rules for effective communication in the workplace, specific to their team, especially during team meetings.

This powerful process will lead to collaboratively developed guidelines for effective, professional communication in the workplace. As a result, there will be a clear definition of how team members are expected to communicate with one another in professional settings. As a result, team members will learn how to communicate more openly and professionally with one another, as well as to work through any conflicts that arise and, ultimately, boost their productivity and effectiveness.
