Where could your team communicate more effectively?
How often in the course of business have you seen:
- Projects slow down because key information hasn’t been shared?
- False assumptions lead to poor decisions?
- Good decisions not being followed through?
- Someone saying some version of “Yes” when they meant — and acted on — “No?”
- A team hearing and moving forward based on incorrect second hand direction?
- People lacking the context to keep an initiative moving forward?
- Team members making decisions that impact others without consideration?
The list is endless. But you get the idea. Communication slowdowns and breakdowns are the root cause for virtually every other slowdown and breakdown you confront.
People aren’t bad or wrong for doing these things. They’re human. Still, if you have a stake in how your business performs, you need to become conscious of how humans communicate and how humans can communicate effectively.
And working on improving communication in your business is not just about stopping the breakdowns. It’s also about the opposite.
Communication Flow is the primary root cause for closing deals. For competitive edge. For customer satisfaction and repeat business. For talent attraction and retention. This list goes on and on.
