language, conversation, depositions 2. WRITTEN letter, note, text, e-mail, memo, social media, notes, formal contracts, images, presentations, brands / logos, meeting minutes, written reports, excel spreadsheets, publications 3. NON VERBAL facial expressions, gestures, para-linguistics, body language, proxemics, eye contact, haptics, appearance To lead others, you must demonstrate effective communication skills. Otherwise, a manager will lack the credibility to implement his employer's objectives, and struggle to rally worker teams behind them. Effective communication between managers and

employees is requisite for a well-functioning workplace. COMMUNICATION IN MANAGEMENT Think about how well a restaurant would run if no one managed the servers, chef, waiters or cleaning staffthe restaurant would lack efficiency and accountability. 4 MAIN AREAS WHERE COMMUNICATION IS VITAL IN MANAGEMENT ARE 1. Employee Relations: The best managers understand

the need for building alliances and communicating throughout all levels of the organization. Effective communications skills are a must for breaking down barriers, which promotes the collaborative atmosphere that an organization needs to thrive. A typical employee's engagement and interest in work varies from day to day. Astute managers accept this reality but can tailor their own communication style to motivate an employee to achieve the desired result. 2. Gains in Productivity

4 MAIN AREAS WHERE COMMUNICATION IS VITAL IN MANAGEMENT ARE Whether they realize it or not, managers are the linchpin of a company's productivity efforts. Managers must clearly articulate strategies and plans so that an employee team knows what to do, and how the company envisions them being carried out. At the same time, each team member should understand his role, and why his particular task is so important. If the manager

can't make that case, employees grow complacent and less interested in their work. 3. Multigenerational Relations 4 MAIN AREAS WHERE COMMUNICATION IS VITAL IN MANAGEMENT ARE Conflicts are likely when employees from different generations find themselves working together. Good communications skills are a must for managers wanting to succeed in this environment. For example, the competitive

drive of Baby Boomer employees born between 1946 and 1964 may not sit well with Generation X and Y peers, born in 1965 or later, who desire a less intense work life. Managers must avoid blanket stereotypes when trying to encourage the various groups to interact with each productively 4. Problem Solving Skills 4 MAIN AREAS WHERE COMMUNICATION IS VITAL IN MANAGEMENT ARE Effective communication and

problem-solving skills go hand in hand. Employees who struggle on the job naturally look to managers for guidance to solve their problems. A manager who lacks discretion, however, is unlikely to gain the trust he needs to address co-worker conflicts, declining performance or substance abuse issues. Failure to address these situations, in turn, jeopardizes the organization's productivity and ability to carry out its mission. Communicatio
