The Importance of Team Collaboration

It is common knowledge that millennials and Generation Y have and still are revolutionizing the workplace. Not only are their communication styles different from those of previous generations, but so are workplace values. This generational cohort thrives in an office environment that promotes transparency and a sense of community. In fact, 88% of millennials prefer a collaborative workplace over a competitive one. Numerous companies are shifting towards adopting a more collaborative environment, because millennials are the largest segment in the US labor force.  

How Can Visual Communication Help You Build a Stronger Team?

There is a common misconception that holding frequent meetings with your team will result in higher productivity and better teamwork. However, this is not quite the case. Each month, employees around the U.S. waste 31 hours on unproductive meetings. 

Meetings are usually held to share complicated ideas and conduct training sessions. But do they always help employees develop and learn new skills? The answer is no. As a matter of fact, after one day, people forget more than 70 percent of what was taught in training.

This can be explained by the fact that humans remember only 10% of what they hear, 20% of what they read and 80% of what they see. Regular trainings and meetings lack visual communication, which results in a low information retainment rate.

Using visual communication tools in business will not only help you improve employee development, but also achieve effective team communication. They make it easy to spread complicated messages within your team and reduce misunderstandings.

How Can Task Management Boost Team Collaboration and Productivity?

Efficient team collaboration is dependent on successful project management. It not only helps to accelerate productivity by distributing tasks to your team members, but it also allows to keep track of their progress. The key elements of effective project planning include:

Specific objectives: It is imperative that your team sets specific objectives, as they can help you create a clear path of what you want to achieve. 

Time management: A detailed schedule will let your teammates be aware of what needs to be completed in a certain timeframe and manage their workload more efficiently.

Feedback: Constructive feedback can serve as a valuable tool to not only help your teammates avoid major mistakes but also improve performance. It is more important to speak up and share your honest opinion than let your team produce low-quality work.
