Changing technology makes focus on communication in the workplace essential. Teamwork and communication go hand in hand. For a team to be successful, each member must communicate effectively to ensure the group as a whole is always up to date on the task at hand. Whether you’re working with a small project team or an entire business’ staff, it’s essential to focus on communicating effectively to realize the benefits of team communication. This session contains an overview of the communication process and the common pitfalls in the process. We also define the communication filters and demonstrate how filters impact the way we communicate with others.
