Visibility Drives Communication and Communication Drives Loyalty

Get out of your office…talk to the people! That was the wisest piece of advice I ever recieved from one of my bosses. Fortunately it happened early in my career so I have been applying it ever since. Why?

  • If people see you…they get to know you and will trust you.  That trust creates loyalty.
  • You will hear what their concerns are and be able to address them.
  • It keeps you in touch with what is going on in the organization.
  • You will learn things that help improve your operation.

There is nothing magic about this.  You need to get out of your office and talk to the people.  I tell leaders they should make it a point to wander around talking to people for at least 30 minutes a day.  Try it.  You will be amazed at the results.
