From verbal to digital, internal, external and everything in between; communication is the vessel for sharing information, ideas, and intentions. A strong sense of communication the foundation for success in every business and brand. Here are 3 best practices in cultivating strong communication cadence.
It’s important to be thoughtful about how and when you’re communicating with your team. That means knowing when information should be shared in a meeting or if this could be a simple email. Customize your communication delivery depending on your intended outcome to make sure that everyone’s time is being considered and well utilized.
Consistency is what helps develop the tempo in your communication. Meetings should have a consistent schedule and follow a consistent format or agenda. Content of the agenda may change but this routine allows for more effective communication. At the core of consistency is timing:
- Sharing information on time.
- Responding in a timely manner.
- Determining the best times.
Create spaces for feedback and discussion. From working with clients, coworkers, and leading teams, collaboration nurtures new ideas, opportunities, and improvements to existing systems. Setting aside space for collaboration also allows for those around you to contribute to developing the right rhythm for communication.
