Session #3: Positive Communication to Build an Engaged Team
No matter where you find yourself in life you must be able to communicate effectively in order to be successful. Everything that happens in the workplace is affected by good or bad communication. This workshop will provide an opportunity to acquire and refine those communication skills that are the keys to any successful leader’s performance.
Building an effective and engaged team involves understanding how to bring individual and organizational needs together in a way that leads to success for all parties. Effective leaders must help to motivate and inspire creativity in others, facilitate a process that will clarify common goals for the team, and involve the team in developing an effective action plan to achieve these goals. This workshop will provide specific strategies for enhancing team effectiveness:
- Create a culture that inquires about situational realities in the workplace
- Ask strategic questions that strengthen relationships by clarifying facts and avoiding accusations: Open ended and probing questions
- Using perception checks to open discussion and reduce anger
