Communication is paramount in all relationships. Today’s Blog is going to focus on a concept that FADI uses to connect the importance of communication, employee engagement, and critical thinking. Communication is vital in all of our relationship dynamics, and in today’s thought, I want to discuss how important communication is in the corporate arena. Without a doubt the key to leadership in today’s workforce is communication, and the result of effective communication with employees is engagement. Establishing an organization critical-thinking culture around critical thinking strategies will ensure that communication links are competent enough to communicate organizational goals, change management processes and the strategic approach must ensure that communication is efficiently as well. Engaged employees can work towards the company mission while continuing to train, develop and grow; thus, having an organizational culture designed to engage staff can be a company’s competitive advantage.
In an economic climate in constant flux, the need for attentive, prepared staff has never been more important — such staff must think critically to allow for teams to adapt to challenges and act decisively both as individuals and as a collective. Effective critical-thinking leads to positive organizational inertia, by which success today makes success tomorrow more likely. A corporate culture that thinks critically about how well it communicates and what it communicates will enhance decision-making ability of all who participate in the process of achieving those goals and outcomes that have been over-communicated by leadership.
At FADI, our critical-thinking process has been founded on the perspective that we have the most significant impact on as many people as possible. We work on developing a “habit of focusing on the elements of thought whenever the need to solve a problem arises. Whether it is in the corporate world, workplace leadership, school or life in general, the practice of analyzing your thinking and decision-making processes whenever a problem-solving need arises is paramount in today’s change-oriented climate.
