"Communication is key" is an overused truism.
Barriers to growth, trust and the birth of new ideas can be directly linked to the absence of good communication--the ignoring of messages verbal and nonverbal.
What aren't you articulating? What messages are you not taking in?
Action is not the solution. Slowing down, asking questions, creating space for the words, for the meanings, that need to be shared is critical for effective leadership and personal growth.
All we have is the journey--some things need to be picked up along the road and examined. What gets evoked craves to be transformed into something useful.
