Daniel Watson's curator insight, July 8, 2013 9:16 AM


Business owners sometimes forget that talking is not communication, and as a consequence, often experience high levels of frustration when others don't get the message and fail to act as expected.


in addition to the message content, communication also involves body language, listening, writing and acting in alignment with the the expected outcomes to be delivered, and whilst complex, effective communication skills can be developed.


This excellent article, suggests that business owners need to understand and overcome the communication barriers faced by the targets of their communication, and it identifies seven categories of barriers that must be overcome to ensure effectiveness in message delivery.

John Michel's curator insight, July 8, 2013 12:13 PM

Founders have to communicate their ideas and products to investors, business partners, and the rest of the team. Then, hopefully, come customers, distribution channels, and going public or merging with an attractive buy-out candidate. Communication is not just talking, but also listening, writing, body language, and “actions speak louder than words.”

The investment in time and attention to creative workers is essential to any long term relationship with the employee. Organizational process -- along with zealots preaching unrealistic productivity goals -- all too often quelch the imagination and extinguish innovation.

Rolf Hagenow-Jansen's curator insight, July 28, 2013 2:32 PM

In my point of view create diverse teams is the most important point to foster creativity.
