Everyone thinks that their organization has a communication problem. And it’s true, but isn’t it funny that the word communication doesn’t say much? Because you don’t know what the communication issue really is.

Is it that information doesn’t pass up through the organization, or down through the organization, or through the organization, or is it that we don’t work through conflict well? What is the real communication issue?

Well, I will tell you one communication issue you can address yourself, and that is keeping your supervisor and your team appraised of what’s going on.

If there’s a customer issue, let people know; if there’s a project breakdown, let people know; if there’s a deadline about to not be hit, let people know. Because in the absence of information, real breakdown happens.

So today, decide to be an over-communicator. and bring that to work with you every day.
