Active supervision challenge: Communication
Effective communication occurs when your intended audience members receive the same message that you sent them
Greetings everyone, I’m Coach Paul. Can you believe that we are in the fourth month of our active supervision challenge? I hope that you are enjoying the process of learning about and improving your active supervision skills.
For those of you new to this series, which debuted on Police1 in January, I am in the process of describing the 10 skills of active supervision. I define active supervision as the continual and consistent enforcement of the rules of your organization.
So far, I have covered performance management and critical thinking. This month I review communication. In this article, I define effective communication, review the basic communication model, identify the most common barriers to effective communication, discuss the two principles of effective communication, and provide a few tips and techniques to help you improve your communication skills. Let’s get started.
