Communication skills for Team Leaders & Supervisors

We all communicate every day, but how effective is your communication?  How do you know? 

This three hour session will examine good practice in communications in the modern day world, including how to adapt your messages, and hear others as they intended in a line management position.

Session aims

To examine what effective communication is, and to identify the strengths in our own personal styles of communication, whilst also identifying gaps or habits which may create barriers to being heard, or truly “hearing” others. 

The session will enable team leaders and supervisors to develop practical skills through exercises and activities to highlight strengths and areas for improvement in their current communication styles and methods.

Session content

  • Communication in a line management role – why it is so critical.
  • What is “communication” and how do you know if you are an effective communicator? – dispelling the myths
  • What’s your VHF?  Favourite channels and how these can work with or against us when communicating with teams and individuals.
  • Span of control and sphere of influence – why do they matter and the importance of adjusting messages accordingly to suit audience needs.

  • Modes and methods of communications for effective line management :
    • Face to face communications
      • Words, music and dance relating to body language, voice and choice of words.
    • Tells – what signals do you give out and how do you know?
    • Video conference and virtual meetings – making the best of modern technology and the “rules of engagement”.
  • Keeping others informed – structuring and managing meetings and joint communications
  • One to ones and the WASP principle – how to give feedback in the right way.
