Lab leaders would like to get more support, cooperation, and commitment from their team members. The most effective all-purpose tool to build team spirit among workers from different disciplines, generations, and cultures is communication. When done right, communication acts as the glue that binds the interests and aspirations of lab team members together to align their focus on common strategies, consistent procedures, targeted objectives, and eventual project success. Effective communications tap into the organizational culture and help to harness the contributions and showcase the value of each team member. This presentation will discuss good communication techniques and explain their power in the modern laboratory setting.
In this webinar participants will learn about:
- Functional and dysfunctional teams
- The high costs of poor communications
- How to communicate well in teams
