How effective are you when communicating with others?  Have you ever asked someone to perform a task at work or home and they finished it completely different then what you expected?  What did you do?  Did you have a conversation with them to find out why they completed it differently than you expected?  One way to avoid this type of situation is to ensure you are practicing effective communication. 

We communicate with others in a variety of ways; such as verbal, written, body language and listening.  Yes, listening is a skill that helps you to communicate effectively.  However, letís focus on ways you can communicate a task to someone in order to get the expected outcome you want or need.  Most of us have probably experienced someone doing something for us in a way which was not satisfactory.


Communication Techniques


Here are some communication techniques you can use to improve
how you speak or write when assigning tasks at work or home:

Be specific and give detail regarding the task and what its expected outcome should be.  Be vivid as if you are painting a picture.  One way of doing this is to choose simple words and language when explaining the task and outcome, so that the person can easily understand and has a clear picture.  Be respectful, thoughtful and courteous when corresponding with the person.

Avoid assumptions by not leaving out any significant requirements.  In other words, leave no room in which the person doing the tasks assumes or you assume that they understand the task and what is expected.  Be sure they have clarity by allowing them to ask questions and you answering all of their questions.

Be encouraging and positive in your tone when relaying your message especially, if there are some requirements or expectations that you know may be uncomfortable for the person to perform.  You should support and guide the person when appropriate and ensure they have what is needed to get the job done as requested.

Working with the person to develop SMART goals is one way of ensuring they are successful in achieving the task as required.  In working together will allow both of you to discuss the task and
outcome in further detail to ensure you are in agreement and that
the task is achievable. As you may know the acronym SMART is as
follows:

Specific
Measureable
Attainable
Relevant
Time Based


In addition to the above mentioned you want to make sure that each SMART goal is being tracked in order to keep up with how the person is progressing for completing it on time and to
address any issues if necessary.  You can reference the article
How to Set Goals and Achieve Them for more information about
SMART goals basing it on your situation.
