Our nation is suffering from a toxic debt, and we all pay the price. This is not a monetary debt, it is a communication debt. One that has been festering for years, decades even. Is your team suffering from a communication debt that is impacting your bottom dollar?
When a matter or issue continues to crop up over time, whether you view the matter to be important issues, typical issues or missed conversation opportunities that start to pile up between your team members, employees or another individual. This debt can accrue in many ways, from a lack of response, say to emails, texts, Voxes, Marco Polo’s, Snap’s etc. From receiving a partial response.
