If the game of Chinese whispers has proved anything, one small error can change the meaning of an entire message.
Here’s how the game is placed. Around 30-40 children are asked to sit in a line or circle in a room. The child sitting on one end of the line whispers a message in the child sitting next to them. That second child will now whisper the message to the child on his right.
And so on.
The last child in the line will then stand up and repeat what they were told.
And that is when the entire room bursts into laughter.
The first child is amused and confused because what they said is, in most cases, completely different from what the last child has heard.
Sure, it’s all fun and games with a bunch of school-age children, but in business, miscommunication due to unoptimized communication channels can get be quite damaging as well as frustrating. It could result in a loss of sales and customers.
It can also create feelings of mistrust and result in a toxic work environment.
That’s why we suggest optimizing communication in your office. Here’s how:
1. Business technology that makes communication in the office more effective
Collaboration is critical when it comes to business. It’s easy when everyone’s in the same spot, but in today’s world, with interest in remote work rising by 360% and business spread out over large areas, countries, and even continents, collaboration can get tricky.

It is perfect for the new hybrid business. Communication model with workers working from other countries or even from their homes
