With the emergence of email and social media as primary communication hubs, the art of effective communication is more important than ever. At LARK Promotions, we highlight a number of ways that you can improve your team relations. Here are a few of our favorites:
Trust Your Team
One of the best ways that you can communicate with your team is by trusting team members. By allowing them to take control of projects, give and receive input, and have a voice in important decisions, you show each individual that you value their work. This will lead to more imaginative and creative work. When your team trusts you, they are more willing to work harder with and for you.
Give Team Members High-Level Ownership
We are not suggesting you hand over the reins of the company to your team – at least, not overtly. What we mean by this is: Make your team feel as though they control the outcome of the company. In many ways, this is already true. A successful business is only as strong as its team members. If you let your people know that they own a piece of the company, they will take more pride in their work and will be more invested in business outcomes.
Make Work Fun
We spend the majority of our lives at work. Wouldn’t it be nice to go to a place where you have fun? By creating a company culture that inspires rather than dulls, you are creating a place where people want to be.
These are just a few of the communication tools that we value at LARK Promotions. We hope that these will help you develop the positive team environment that we have created here.
