WHAT ARE YOUR COMMUNICATION TRAINING OBJECTIVES?
How do you get busy teaming? What if your team is made up of top performers who hate to fail and love to excel? Here’s what one team of effective communicators focuses on when it comes to practicing and profiting from good communication skills…
◊ The key is motivation, motivating everyone to be the very best they can be.
◊ Understand that the success of the person relates to the success of the company…and vice versa.
◊ The success of the company is directly related to the effort of the individual.
◊ Our leadership wants everyone to be involved and committed to the team approach.
◊ We’re getting there, but there still is a lot of work to be done…we need to openly share ideas as a group.
◊ Company objectives are clear…we don’t want people who have the best ideas to shy away, because implementation of new ideas leads to greater success.
◊ What’s the best way to achieve the objectives? Solve problems as a team
◊ It’s not your problem — it’s our problem. We’re problem solving from a team perspective rather than from an individual perspective.
◊ Stronger personalities won’t point the finger — all personalities around the communicator table will give positive input.
◊ We will not be afraid of failure. We are correcting issues…not correcting people (that’s communication).
◊ It’s not that I don’t like you….I don’t like problems that go uncorrected.
◊ Don’t make people the issue.…Make solving the problem the issue.
◊ Different people drive certain things, but everyone needs to be a driver.
◊ Don’t wait for someone else to get something done — if you see something that’s not being done, take it upon yourself to see that it happens.
◊ We are a whole group of drivers, reaping huge benefits as a team.
◊ If we focus on these areas of change, we will make huge gains.
◊ We work for each other.
◊ Everyone will be working equally hard, together, to produce significant success.
◊ We don’t believe in empire building and clicks….We are one group trying to achieve the same thing.
◊ “I didn’t get it done because they didn’t make it happen…” is not being accountable.
◊ We’ve made big strides, but we can continuously get better.
◊ Our company succeeds when we give you a communication comfort level to express your new ideas without fear.
