Why Communication Could Be Your Business’ Achilles Heel
Poor communication limits your business’s capability to optimize performance. Communication is essentially the blood flow of an organization. It delivers the information to various people working with or within the business to get work done while providing a mechanism for building and strengthening relationships. It can be a significant factor in building company culture, which ultimately reflects upon your brand identity. However, when there are poor communication lines in your business, their effects are felt across the board, and might even leak externally to your customers. Individually, your staff will feel disconnected due to the lack of clear direction from the management. This leads to decreased engagement, low satisfaction rates, and poor performance. Ultimately resulting in an overall lower output from the entire business. Your customers might pick up on this and take their business elsewhere. Let us look at the various ways in which poor communication might be your brand’s Achilles heel.
