FIVE COSTLY MISTAKES MANAGERS MAKE
In their communication that causes poor performance in Latino supervisors
“In my more than 20 years of teaching and dealing with Spanish speaking employees, specializing in the development of effective Hispanic/Latino supervisors, in different industries here in the USA, I have learned a great deal about how management styles shapes the productivity of a multicultural workforce.
I would like to share some insight on how intercultural communication affects the productivity, loyalty, and cooperation of Hispanics/Latino employees.
VERBAL COMMUNICATION AND BODY LANGUAGE
As many of the points I make here, are applicable to many different individuals and situations, the problem is that these issues are more sensitive when it comes to managing people from different cultures, and can have costly side effects to the efficiency of your company.
Take these points into consideration when handling your Spanish Speaking supervisors to improve their productivity, and achieve results faster and more efficiently.
1. FAILING TO BUILD A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP
In general, Hispanics are more interested in developing a long term relationship; a relationship based on trust and respect.
This can take time. Trust begins to develop from how they perceive tone of voice, intentions, actions, understanding the true interest the other person portrays, and their sensitivity to the needs and constraints Hispanics/Latinos have.
With that, it is based on how well you make them feel when you interact with them.
What to do:
Take the time to talk and get to know each of your employees, ask about their family, friends, life, and remember important details. Be sensitive to their needs and limitations and make them feel important.
USING ONLINE TRAINING EFFECTIVELY
Follow this guide to learn how you can use online training programs at your company to effectively build the skills of your employees and help them learn along the way.
The success and effectiveness of any kind of training program depend on the commitment, discipline, and application of the acquired knowledge by the participants.
When substituting onsite training with an online training program, it is important for management to take an active role in the training process by motivating and reinforcing the material learned with their team, and encouraging the use of the training in the workplace.
Most training programs like, Effective Supervisor (Supervisor Eficaz), are designed to be time flexible, with the option of learning the material individually or in a group, but most of the time, group learning is the best method of training to provide support, answer questions, and to fortify skills as a whole so that materials are learned same pace.
Here are some tips in effectively organizing online training group sessions for your company.
ORGANIZE THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Create small groups of up to 10 people that are inclusive of different levels of responsibility, departments etc., that are convenient to the schedules of the employees and the company.
Assign a moderator (or moderators if there are many groups) to manage the structure of the class and to facilitate the session. This person must have all login information to access the program.
The selected moderator(s) should be someone well respected and has a positive attitude, in order to effectively engage participants in the learning material.
THE ROLE OF THE MODERATOR
As mentioned before, the moderator should be someone well respected, that knows how to take command of an audience. This person will be in charge of managing the online sessions, starting and participating in conversations related to the video sessions, and encouraging participants to be involved in the learning process.
After the video, ask participants how or when in their daily life, at work or in personal circumstances, they have applied or experimented what they have just seen in the video. Ask them to explain a related experience.
Keep good morale and respect within the group, and try to make the session entertaining at all times.
Manage the time wisely, but don’t rush to finish an important discussion or exercise. You can always continue in the next session day.
Make sure everyone completes their exercises, either on their own or by forming small working groups.
