Why Your Communication Failed Again

Episode #016 Host: Tammy J. Bond

Leaders often wonder why their communication is failing, even though they think they’re doing everything right. The truth is, we teach people how to treat us. In today’s episode of Playing In The Sandbox, I’ll discuss how you can make sure your communication is effective.

We train people on how to communicate with us. If there’s an issue in communication, you have to find out what you’re doing wrong, and how to fix it. Here are 6 potential causes of ineffective communication:

  1. A lack of clarity.
  2. Poor listening skills.
  3. Making assumptions.
  4. Issues with technology.
  5. A lack of feedback.
  6. A lack of followup.
