Effective Communication Strategies During Uncertain Times
Interpersonal communication skills can be challenging to develop, and they take conscious effort and ongoing practice to improve. During chaos, crisis, and turmoil our communications skills can be tested and if not focused on, can lead to negativity, distrust, misunderstandings, conflict, and increased stress.
Research is showing that many leaders admit they were underprepared for the level, the needed consistency, and the new mediums required for communicating during this crisis. The resulting lack of communication caused fear with employees, decreased productivity, and reduced engagement. Going forward, leaders who continue to focus on effective communication are far more likely to have an engaged team.
Successful leaders know that strong, effective interpersonal communication skills can create a sense of stability and predictability, lower stress and anxiety, and build trust and creativity. The key is to recognize what effective communication looks like, and how to deliver and connect during times of crisis and uncertainty.
By focusing on the necessary interpersonal communication skills that are needed during these times of uncertainty and change you will be able to develop a productive, collaborative, and respectful work environment.
Discover how to effectively communicate with your team as they respond to challenges, and cope through change. Create a communication strategy that ensures employees are clear about what is expected of them, and they receive regular, honest, and transparent updates. Learn to choose the most effective strategies that will help your team stay engaged, balance the uncertainty, and build resilience.
