The Sign of a Good Communicator

Communication is not a game of quantity. The more emails you send, the more times you talk, and the more slides you have in your PowerPoint presentation have no bearing on your level of communication.

Here's a simple way to judge your skill:

If you send a message and it requires another message to clarify what you meant--that is not good.

If your message is sensitive, try the old-fashioned approach--do it in person. If it is not critical, the ideal is one message to the right person (not the world being copied in),that clearly states the situation, is good.

  1. You are a wise man, Barry LaBov. I am an over-communicator...and I can't help myself!
