How you talk is how you get things done.
Communication problems unfold over time. Very rarely will you be able to see communication dysfunction until you are deep into your project, relationship, or work environment. When you finally see that there is a problem what you see are the effects of the issue; missed deadlines, poor quality, turnover. What you aren’t seeing are the causes or the root problems; incomplete communication, dysfunctional habits, past grievances, stubborn assumptions. How can a group of people with different communication styles, habits, and preferences work together to create a successful product when you each have blinders on?
OpenTeam. We work with organizations, teams, and individual managers to identify and change the communication patterns that inhibit performance.
