Why is communication important in business?

Communication is important in business for several reasons:

  1. Facilitating decision-making: Effective communication allows for the sharing of information and ideas among employees, which can lead to better decision-making.
  2. Building and maintaining relationships: Effective communication is crucial for building and maintaining relationships with colleagues, customers, suppliers, partners, and other stakeholders.
  3. Coordinating and motivating employees: Effective communication can help to coordinate the efforts of employees, and to motivate them to work towards a common goal.
  4. Improving productivity and efficiency: Effective communication can help to reduce misunderstandings & errors and enhance innovation, which can improve productivity and efficiency.
  5. Achieving organizational goals: Effective communication can help to ensure that all employees understand the organisation's goals and how their work contributes to achieving these goals.

What is Adaptive Communication?

Adaptive communication refers to the ability of an individual to adjust their natural communication style based on individual differences or changes in the environment.

Examples of adaptive communication may include:

  • Modulating the pitch, language or energy that is used when communicating with others.
  • Detecting when our own communication style (our leading energy) is hindering a positive connection ... and taking steps to adjust this.
  • Adapting to the environment - understanding who is in the room and communicating to them effectively.

How does LEP aid Adaptive Communication?

LEP is a simple online questionnaire that identifies our Leading Energy. This is the dominant cognitive energy (how we like to think) behind why we do what we do. LEP aids self-exploration so we can understand ourselves first, but then shifts attention to others. By understanding what drives others, we can adapt the way that we communicate with them.

LEP can be used in 1:1 coaching, team facilitation, leadership development or communication & negotiation workshops.
