Five important communication activities for teambuilding
« on: March 09, 2007, 04:39:16 AM »
This article nicely illustrates the importance of relatedness among teammates.

I have also been known to complain about the dearth of decent office space, about less than timely software updates and even about the lack of potable liquid in the coffee pot. But, honestly, I have never seen a project actually fail for want of any of these things. I have, however, been part of more than one project that tanked for lack of communication. Here are a few ideas for improving communications in your group.

The points are very true and very well made  :Thmbsup:

My weakness as a young manager was probably his point 4. I remembered how disruptive and annoying disruptions are when you are trying to get things done, so I often avoided using the phone or just walk over and ask to not interrupt the team members.

A good concept but as a result I used email far too much.

You need to watch the interruptions you cause carefully, but all/in/email is bad for communication.
