It happens at more organizations than we can count, lack of effective communication. To be more precise – “Communication” whittled down to a system alert or an automated email. Effective communication makes up about 80% of the “secret ingredient” to any successful organization.
Systems break down, Emails go unread, and buzzing or beeping is quickly ignored. Pick up the telephone, or better yet, get face to face and let someone know that they are a valued member of your team, and that together, you have work to do.
