Suggested reading: All Things Workplace: Nothing Happens Until People Talk.

Add these four thoughts to your leadership communication kit:
  • Never assume that anyone knows anything.
  • The larger the group, the more attention needs to be given to communicating.
  • When left in the dark, people will fantasize their own reality. Do you want their fantasy to trump your reality?
  • Effective leaders are obsessed with accurate, frequent communication.

I especially love point #3: When left in the dark, people will fantasize their own reality. Do you want their fantasy to trump your reality?
