Businesses, organizations, leaders – do you find the daily operation of your facility or business overwhelming? Do you need external support to handle your team? Have you implemented a safe Post-Pandemic Return to Work Program? Does it include Improved Communication, Conflict Resolution and Mental Health & Wellness?
If you are so busy running the day to day operations and hoping that the team will manage themselves – this strategy will not work. Denying and ignoring will not make your problems go away, and in fact can make things worse. If effective communication and proper training is lacking, conflict can arise and this will have a negative effect on the team. This can result in lack of engagement, toxic behaviour, increased stress and decreased productivity. I feel that at the root of many workplace problems is poor communication which then leads to problems in these areas. Businesses must be able to deal properly with these negative behaviours and have proper training and support in place to manage conflict, improve communication and increase employee engagement. As well, attention should be given to support the mental health and wellness of everyone within the organization. When ignored, these issues have an effect on employee morale, retention and lower performance.
