Establish Effective Communications in Your Business through Team Building Systems
AdviCoach says understanding employees' behavioral profiles can help the message get through
Southbury, CT (Grassroots Newswire) – As a business owner, have you ever felt as if you were speaking a foreign language? Many of us frequently feel that way when we are communicating with our team and wonder why we're not getting through. "All of us have a unique behavioral or communication style," said Brian Miller, COO and president of AdviCoachÒ, "and if we're not able to effectively communicate in a way which gets through to others, we might as well be speaking a different language."
AdviCoach suggests that business owners should implement a Team Building System that includes a behavioral profile of their team members. These profiles help improve communication by providing employers with a better understanding of the behavioral or personality differences among their employees.
"There are several outstanding behavioral profile systems that exist today" says Miller, "that an AdviCoach can make available to a business owner. These systems measure observable behavior and can be very helpful in identifying the right talent as well as in helping the individual, once hired, understand his or her own strengths and gaps." A Robert Half International study of executives from one thousand of the nation's largest companies indicates that managers spend 13 percent of their time, the equivalent of six-and-a-half work weeks per year, resolving personality conflicts among workers.
An effective Team Building System helps a business owner in several ways by allowing the owner to:
- Recruit the right kind of talent to fit the profile of the position requirements;
- Tailor training to the person's communication style to reduce ramp up time;
- Provide direction as to key priorities in such a way that they are understood and effectively acted upon;
- Increase harmony among all team members; and
- Help team members communicate more effectively with each other
