Communicating regularly with your staff and ensuring they can provide feedback helps to keep staff engaged and provides opportunities for any questions.
It is important to make team goals clear to your staff and communicate key achievements, activities, issues and developments. The communication should occur in a timely manner and consideration should be given about the best ways it should be done. Communicating important issues are best undertaken face-to-face to ensure open discussions can take place and questions and concerns can be raised immediately. For other activities and announcements a staff newsletter or email might suffice.
Remember that a big part of effective communication is listening. Make sure you listen to any feedback your staff might have and take that feedback into consideration.
