The purpose of this assignment is to develop an argument concerning the poor communications and feedback in organisations.
Thesis statement: The impact of positive communication increase the organisation productivity and relationship between employees and managers
The annotated bibliography highlighted the loss of productivity within the workplace was due to the gaps within the internal communication in an organisation, which can otherwise be improved. The author Chmielecki, (2015) determined through experimental research that the flows of information within the employees of an organisation need to be monitored by the senior management. According to Johansson, Miller & Hamrin, (2014) the leaders need to develop communication competency to meet the corporate and organisational needs through employees successfully. Voinea et al., (2015) opined that positive feedback communication between the senior management and the employees would limit the embarrassments within the organisation, improve the employee productively effectively, and alternatively leads to decreased internal communications. This was supported by the claims of Quintanilla & Wahl, (2018), where it was highlighted the positive communications would improve the relationship between the employee and the managers in generating feedback and information sharing develop workplace relationship and employee motivation. This approach is also important n case of project management internal communication improved the strategic potential in international non-governmental organisations or INGOs (Hume & Leonard, 2014).
In all sectors of business including governmental and non-governmental organisations, the effectiveness of the employee performance is dependent on communication. The relationship with the management is also dependent on the communication strategies being used. The productivity of the employees varies with the kind of information being shared with them by the senior management. Effective communication and positive feedback method hence can be used for achieving both.
