Over the past few weeks I've had conversations with a number of senior business leaders. Throughout the interviews, I found myself making notes about communication myths I thought had been put to rest a long time ago. Apparently, they live on.
We have to make these myths disappear:
1. "Employees are not interested in information beyond their daily tasks."
2. "Employees are overloaded and don't want more information."
3. "Employees are not partners in the business; they only work for a salary."
4. "Sensitive information is reserved for senior leaders."
5. "Information is a powerful tool for individuals; the power is diluted when shared with groups."
