What’s the drill – March 2nd: Communication is a two-way street

How many times have you heard organizational leaders utter the phrase, “we have to communicate more” – in response to employees not understanding or getting on board with company initiatives or projects?

What’s the drill for today reminds us that communication is a two-way street.  Often, employees are more concerned with whether or not management is listening to what they have to say.

To achieve stronger communication, remember that maintaining and creating a back-and-forth dialogue is important.

Can you turn your company updates into town hall meetings? Can you create more time for back-and-forth discussion (beyond an annual survey?).

Get on the road to better communication. But remember to look and listen both ways.
