Guest Blog by MetaExpert Giuseppe Lovecchio: Key Elements of Communication for Achieving Operational Excellence

October 23, 2017

Business communications problems are at the heart of Operational Excellence performance. Statistics say that about 90% of time spent by managers is devoted to communication, so it is paramount to be prepared on this topic.

Of this communication, we know that about 70% is non-verbal, in terms of motion, posture, eye contact, and so on. Emotional intelligence can help to overcome the types of non-performing attitude that can result from bad communication. Additionally, in a multicultural environment, it is key to understand cultural barriers and how to overcome them through robust communication approaches.

Another key point in business communication is the use of "verbal" or "text" communication. Especially in a supplier/customer relationship, it is important to understand what communication channel the supplier or the customer prefers. In this way, the communication is facilitated because there is a capacity for adaptation.

Communication is not an easy task, especially in this interconnected business world. MetaExperts can help you improve this capability.
