The Grapevine teaches employees how to avoid disastrous consequences caused by workplace rumors when there is a lack of communication in the company.
The Grapevine Training Video Summary:
This John Cleese communication training video demonstrates that employees need to know what is going on in the company, especially if the circumstance could personally affect them. If there is a lack of communication between the company and its employees, workplace rumors will begin to surface. Once workplace rumors start, they are hard to stop – and it is even harder to correct wrong information.
The Grapevine shows what happens when people suspect the worst and begin workplace rumors to make up for the lack of communication in the company. In The Grapevine, employees read in the paper that one of their clients is going bankrupt. Because all management heads did not inform staff as directed for fear of alarming them, workplace rumors begin to mount. The department that is not informed about the bankruptcy by their manager, finds out other departments were informed. They then suspect they are going to lose their jobs. Job performance slows and employees begin searching for new jobs.
The realistic situation in this John Cleese communication training video demonstrates how potential problems can be avoided by keeping internal communications flowing. Viewers learn the importance of creating a communications process, holding regular meetings, and encouraging staff ideas. This John Cleese training video emphasizes that open and honest communication is best.
