5 tips for Communication Improvement :
Be kind, but be direct. Be calm and think about what you want from your team and also understand what are they expecting from you and then help them with some tremendous solutions. Be crystal clear on what you want to say and finish the conversation; don’t hold the conversation for a very long time.
Stick to Deadlines. Everyone makes promises. It’s not about the promises made but it is about the promises fulfilled. We should promise what we can do and is worth doing rather than keeping your team in dark clouds by giving them an empty promise. In the frenetic business schedule, Accountants sometimes take workloads which they are unable to complete, thus it leads to being poor communication. Accountants rarely stick to their deadlines by taking the burden of work on themselves.
Ensure proper flow of work. Plan your schedule and work accordingly, this will maintain your track while working, and also there will be no delay in working. Taking workloads just disrupts your mind and creates chaos. This leads to a tricky family life where an individual cannot spend quality time with their loved ones. There is a proper Rhythm of work when there is proper planning for the same.
Multi-tasking lowers the quality of work and efficiency. One should know that Multi-Tasking is not a boon for the company and but it is a curse. Doing aggregate work is injurious for the company’s health and leads to the workload which comes out in the form of frustration and tapers the value of work performed.
Avoid unnecessary discussions. As simple as it sounds, know what you want to say and say it clearly and confidently. Keep your conversation audible and complete it as early as possible. Do not waste time doing an unnecessary discussion with the team. Directly come straight to the point rather than turning around words and wasting time.
