Team communication is an essential element of a successful company.
Without effective communication between team members, a company is less productive, less efficient, and ultimately less successful. This is why poor team communication is one of the leading reasons companies fail.
However, many companies fail to recognize the signs of communication breakdown before it’s too late.
The good news is that this issue isn’t irreversible. In fact, because communication becomes more difficult as the company size increases, it’s actually a normal part of business growth. It’s when companies fail to adapt to these changes and restore effective communication that we start to see a decline in their success.
