A little separation and specialization can be a good thing, but when people or teams are completely in the dark about what others are doing, deadlines are missed, work is duplicated, productivity dips, and important things slip through the cracks.
For example, 86% of employees cite a lack of collaboration or ineffective communication as a cause of project failures. Meanwhile, when employees see the big picture and understand their overall role in the organization, 91% are committed to working toward success. (That rate drops to 23% when people don’t understand their overall role.) And organizations with good communication practices get a 47% higher return to shareholders.
Our courses help employees consider the needs and mission of everyone involved in the organization and give them the skills to communicate their needs and work with others.
