Communicating well builds trust

Communicating well builds trust

More time gets spend on second-guessing the intent behind poor communication than working to improve it.

Take the time to establish clear expectations around how your team is communicating.

7 Common Communication Mistakes

  • Assuming Mal Intent. Not everything is intentional, so don’t let an innocent oversight degrade trust.
  • Hiding Behind Email. Email’s a great supporting tool, but it seldom plays well as the lead medium.
  • Failure to Write Down Decisions. Writing down and reading back key decisions is an important way for everyone to move in the same direction.

  • Wasteful Meetings. To save everyone's time, only hold meetings to make decisions and/or to improve relationships.

  • Spin. If you want people to truly listen, be sure they can believe what you say. Encourage transparency and truth-telling.

  • Boring Packaging. Ditch the 35-page PowerPoint deck and explain why your project really matters.

  • Inept Listening. Listen carefully and ask great questions. Create meaning from the responses.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
