It seems so obvious but good communication, and sharing of key information, seems to be an issue in many companies.
Without good communication, both inside and outside your company, things will be confusing, drive conflicts and certainly won’t move in the right direction.
Good communication …
- Speeds things up as team mates will know what to do when.
- Avoids unneccesary and / or repeated questions.
- Reduces misunderstanding or uncertainty.
- Builds a healthy work environment.
- Improves transparency.
- Creates empowerment.
- Clarifies expectation.
- Holds accountable.
How can I improve my communication ?
Simply always ask yourself “ who should know, who actions, who benefits knowing ? ”
