Here's another leadership truth I've learned through the years: What people aren't up on, they're down on! It's very true. If people don't know what is happening in the business, or organization or family, they become frustrated, discouraged and begin to lose faith in the leader.
Therefore, all leaders need to work very hard at communicating what's going on. They need to say it over and over again. They need to realize you can't over communicate anything, especially the major "going on's" in the organization. When people don't understand, they'll often make decisions on assumption and that's always dangerous.
What people aren't up on, they're down on. Leaders need to communicate, communicate and then communicate some more!
It's essential for total health in any organization, business and/or family.
