We suck @ communication


Published on

We cannot collaborate until we have effective communication, so it seems to me a good idea to take a fresh look at what works and what fails. Comments are welcome and so are embeds, likes and shares.

  2. 2. On top of my wishlist: communication that engages and satisfies. How do we collaborate well if we do not communicate well? It’s time to take a fresh look at what does and does not work and for whom. Let’s call out the ‘failures to communicate’ and figure out what works better. This work-in- progress is for a future talk I’d love to give at an event or workshop. You are welcome to adapt and reuse with the attribution-sharealike license.
