I had a final job interview many years ago in which this was evident. As is the case with many final job interviews this one was with the team that I would be working with. I believed my interview was going great, but one particular person’s body language told me otherwise. She just blankly stared at me, kind of “freaky” like. When I was being funny, she didn’t laugh. When I was being engaging and looking for agreement, she didn’t nod her head.
Poor communication on teams can occur for a lot of reasons and range from convoluted messages, lack of full participation by team members, leaders withholding information, lack of cascading key information and using the wrong vehicle for communication (e-mail as opposed the phone or face to face).
