"Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing." - Rollo May
I analyzed a host of emails sent tonight and recognized that some emails were answered quickly and others were never answered. Why the difference?
I found, in general, if email questions were fact based and procedural, they were answered quickly, and if questions or share was deeper, it was generally ignored.
The bigger issues were probably ignored because they took too much time to read or because the reader wasn't that interested in the topic.
This observation makes me ask, "What is good communication, and how do we foster this with one another."
In general, I believe, that open, honest share and communication is best. The more transparent you are, the better your communication will be.
Communication is integral to good teams and effort. It's important to analyze communication patterns often to make sure they are working well.
