The Importance of Communication
The importance of communication cannot be underestimated between supervisors, subordinates and those between supervisors and subordinates. There are many different ways that good communication has become apparently obvious, and even when communication has been needed or required it has always helped even if it just came down to understanding what is going on or when supervisors and subordinates just wish to know what they can do to improve either personal or professional. Supervisors need to know what their subordinates have happening and if they will need time to have their personal affairs in order or if it will require the help or advice of their supervisors, or just someone with more knowledge and experience who help accomplish the task. When there is lack of communication many things can be broken, lost and uncertainty as to what needs to be done. The communication between supervisors has many different reasons for being important, ranging from making sure they know what need to complete certain task to be completed, making sure they do not waste resources and that subordinates are doing task correctly and safely. If a group of supervisors has a task to complete, it would be a waste of time to task multiple subordinates that are not need and could be accomplishing other tasks at the same time. It is necessary for supervisors to communicate how many subordinates they currently have and what task they can complete with and without a supervisor. So if a supervisor does not communicate how many subordinates they currently have available certain task will take longer to complete, while others might not get completed that need to be completed.

Good communication also has a lot of importance between supervisors and subordinates. These communications will help subordinates know that they can ask on how to improve their overall performance in the workplace. While others can find out easier ways to complete the task that are given out by their supervisors. This form of communication will also allow supervisors to inform their subordinates of any issues, a chance to improve and standout from the rest, and to also understand what is happening with their subordinates whether it is personal or professional. When issues arise in the work place, it is important for supervisors to be able to effectively communicate what is or has happened, and what steps should oe need to be taken to prevent that issue from happening again.
