Do you talk to other people? Yes? Great.

Do you talk to them enough? Team communication experiences hiccups as people do not talk to each other enough.

Information circulation fails as one does not say something to another. You can forget. But that makes you a lousy manager.

Make sure everyone has all the information they need for their work. On top of that, communication is key. Without communication expectations create frustration. Teamwork is only pretended, and what's worse, no one dares to communicate.

Learn to talk. You will be surprised how much you can achieve by talking only.

Communication is everything

You can’t work without communication. You always discuss what, who, when, how, and why.

Communication is work. Work is communication.

As you always communicate with someone or something, you never work in a silo. The outcome depends on how well you communicate. Poor communication = poor results. On top of that, poor communication = poor relationships.
