Question :  "What are some good communication tips I can use with my employees?"
Answer : It is fairly common for employees in most organizations, large or small, to complain about internal company communication. Although everyone has their own definition of what effective corporate communication involves, improving one-on-one communication is a good starting point to help solve the problem.

Effective communication begins with, but has only a little to do with what we say. Our voice inflection actually has more than five times the impact on the listener’s understanding than do the words we use. And, even more importantly, our non-verbal clues (gestures, facial expressions, eye contact, etc.) contribute almost eight times more than what our words do to an overall understanding of the message we send.

How we communicate:
   7%   from the words we use
 38%   from our voice inflection
 55%   from non-verbal (body language)
100%   of how we communicate
