Internal team communication is without a doubt the biggest challenge any team is facing today. No matter, whether your team is remote or co-located, getting along or getting work done is easier said than done. It’s often complicated and never irrelevant.
Enabling better communication between teams is a major benefit for the bottom line of the company. According to The McKinsey Global Institute, productivity and sales skyrocketed by 20-25% in organizations with connected and engaged teams. In a similar study, 86% of executives identify ineffective collaboration and communication as a major cause of failure in business.
Therefore, improving internal team communication is just as important as understanding it. So, in this particular article, I have summed up some practical advice and hack that will help you perfect your internal communication plan.
Internal communication is best described as the process of keeping teams/departments within an organization well connected and informed. The idea is to create and maintain a shared understanding.
Once communication happens smoothly within an organization, all executives and employee seem to acquire benefits like:
Elevate levels of creativity
Share a clear sense of direction
Promote understanding and trust
Act and make decisions with courage
Increase levels of engagement
Build and maintain better work relations
Boost productivity and morale
Deliver a higher quality of work
Avoid conflicts and situations of unrest
However, when communication fails, it can do too much damage to your organization and its goals. From constant confusion in everyday processes to degrading morale among employees—and ultimately FAILURE. The cost of poor internal communication is much higher than you would expect.
