My name is Helen Vella, Vella and Associates; Business Consultant, Coach Trainer and author. This segment is about team communication skills. Now it's very important that you have good communication skills within your team. If you have good communication within your team, it's going to empower the team. Empowering a team is, is amazing; you get great results; you get good respect if you have an empowering team. The team needs to know what their role is. So good communication so that you define each role of each person. Get feedback from them also, so that they understand what their role is. They understand their job within this team. They know where they are; what, what the team means to them and what they mean to the team. Get feedback on brainstorm; brainstorm ideas; get them involve. A team wants to be involved. Don't have favorites. Don't pick on one person and also, if someone says something in a brainstorm, don't discount it. Even if you think you're not going to use the idea, don't discount it because you want to encourage them; you want to motivate them. When a team avoids blaming; it's a team effort; if a team doesn't do well; it's a team effort, do not single anyone out and blame them for what's going on. Learn by it. Experience it and then get feedback of how you can do better. Get the feedback from the team. It's great for morale to get the feedback. It's great for morale to get them involve. You want them to communicate and you want to communicate with them. Have a team incentive also. This will really helps communicate between each other so that they can work together to build so that they can get this incentive. So good communication within the team; impose some respect; define their roles; get feedback from them; avoid blaming anyone and you have a great morale.
