Communications

Unblock Your Arteries! 

communications_large_200When your organization fails to communicate properly, it's like a gridlocked traffic system. Nothing gets through. Others don't reach you… and you don't reach them. And that leads to all the symptoms of an organization that doesn't work: frustration; anger; missed deadlines; late deliveries; blame and recriminations. No wonder people say that 99.9% of all workplace problems are due to poor communications. But it doesn't have to be this way. Imagine a workplace where people have communication skills a-plenty. Where people go out of their way to talk the same language. Where everyone tries to understand others first. And where there is a high level of connectedness and free flow. Impossible? Not with high-level communications skills, it's not.
