At Braathe Enterprises, clarity and sincerity remain essential elements within our team. It allows us to entertain a good communication between all the employees and thus, to produce a more effective work.
Why is language such a fundamental element within a company?
The choice of leaders’ words definitely impacts on the team’s productivity. “Words can hurt”, and consequently, morale and effectiveness of employees are easily influenced by the language used at work.
Leaders have the power to create a positive environment of trust and transform negative critics into positive advice. When an employee commits a mistake, it is important to be firm while staying positive regarding the good elements he brings to the company.
Attention and respect are essential to make the employee feel safe and valued. Suggestions, advice, and critics are welcome, but it must not hinder the employee’s morale in order to benefit to both. Using language that humiliates or scares runs counter to the healthy growth of a company. By being more positive, leaders also gain significant influence and legitimacy over their employees.
Language and good communication constitute fundamental elements to bring a better working environment and more productive results.
