The Fish Isn’t Sick...the Water is Dirty

How to Keep Communication ‘Waters’ Clean to Increase Collaboration, Boost Teamwork, and Build Remarkable Relationships
The Fish isnt sick the water is dirty
It is critical to organizational performance that employees avoid creating a workplace that discourages communication.  The reason most organizations have communication issues is unintentional discouragement of honesty. Employees unknowingly create communication barriers and act in ways that make their colleagues uneasy about sharing critical feedback with them.

Increase productivity and profitability

How does lack of open, honest communication impact your organization? The average employee loses seven weeks of productivity every year because of troublesome and unresolved communication issues. Lack of open, honest communication is at the root of 80 percent of problems at work. Upwards of 75 percent of employees who leave their jobs do so because of communication issues and relationship issues with their boss– not money. Even more startling is that 91 percent of people admit to lying regularly; and the number-one reason they lie is fear. The key question is what is this costing you in lost productivity, profitability, and missed new business opportunities?
