I realized tonight that I had recently got into an argument with somebody at work because of poor communication. We were actually in agreement as to what needed to be done, and some disagreement existed about the details. Because the intention was not communicated at all, and the details were expected to be a certain way by all parties, it degenerated VERY quickly from “hey watchoo doin” to “*(*&&$*(^&&*%#@$@)@(^&!*^@(%*))&@$@()*(*^” and it was totally unnecessary.
May we all remember to make sure people know what’s going on before we go off the chain because they’re not on board!
