Poor communication costs businesses millions of dollars due to low productivity,conflict, and staff turnover. To be able to do any kind of work together, we need to communicate. We need to learn the skills to be understood and to understand what is being said to us. Any breakdown in communication can have significant costs to your business. The wrong product shipped to the client, a fight between two team members due to a misunderstanding, colleagues who don’t trust each other, feelings that are hurt, a customer being told the wrong thing… All these can occur as a result of a problem in communication and hurt the reputation of your brand. The costs are quantifiable, too. The Holmes Report reviewed 400 corporations and found that in the largest corporations in the U.S. and the U.K., the price for communication barriers were around $62 million in productivity in each corporation. If your business involves more than one There are no downsides to having good communication. There are, however, clear disadvantages and loss of opportunity in regards to bad communication. Having established that, what can you do about it? person, in any capacity, whether as an employee or a client, you need to be able to communicate effectively. Communication allows you to engage people and build strong relationships. Ineffective communication is harmful to your business… Let’s take a look!

  • Time Loss – communication breakdowns lead to significant time losses, during which the client might as well take their business elsewhere. Timelosses are often a consequence of miscommunication.
  • Disputes and conflicts – Workplace conflicts can result in absenteeism and people leaving their job. In fact, according to research, up to 50% of the reason people leave their job is due to disputes and conflict.
  • Low employee engagement and productivity – Communication breakdowns force people to give their time and attention to fixing the errors that should never have happened in the first place. Poor communication often leads to presenteeism where employees are at work but they are not fully present, engaged and unified as a team. Poor communication causes frustration and stress.
  • Project failure – Poor communication, if it’s not detected on time, can lead to project failure. When a mistake is made early in the process and never caught, and thus the project continues on a faulty base.
  • Decreased revenue – According to The Holmes Report – corporations with leaders identified as highly effective communicators had up to 47% morereturns to shareholders within a five year time span when compared to the corporations with the least effective communicators at the helm. Simply put – good communication pays.
  • Unsafe and unhealthy work environments – Poor communication contributes to unsafe and unhealthy work environments. Employees need to
    clearly understand what is expected of them and they want to be on a healthy cohesive team that is working together. Poor communication can lead
    to a lack of trust, low ‘company buy-in’, issues with occupational health and safety and more.

You can find many general tools that work on improving communication. They offer some solutions that can be effective for some people but not everyone. They don’t especially help resolve conflicts between contrasting communication styles. These tools fall short when they simply prescribe what is happening and then they offer a blanket solution, like using a general script to communicate to introverted or extraverted people on a team. Why is this less effective? Everybody is different. What works for one individual may not work for another team member. Forcing everybody to adopt a specific communication approach can backfire and make some communication issues worse or create resentment among those team members who don’t feel that their communication style is being respected. Other tools focus only on identifying different personalities but don’t provide enough practical tools and they aren’t sufficiently applicable.
