Article 🚨 The Office Doomsday Survival Guide: Why Shutting Down Communication Spells Disaster 🚨

Picture this: the printer is spewing nonsensical gibberish, the coffee machine has declared war on sanity, and Sanjit from accounting is convinced he's a pirate. It's the ultimate office doomsday scenario, and everything that can go wrong is going wrong. But how did we end up here? πŸ€”

Great leaders keep the purposeful communication flowing. Poor leaders do not.

The Silence of the Boss:

🀐 As the fearless leader, shutting down communication can turn your office into a ticking time bomb. When you're more elusive than the Loch Ness Monster, problems pile up faster than a toddler's LEGO tower. Your team needs guidance, support, and a lifeline to sanity – and that lifeline is you. Keep communication flowing via channels that work well for you and your team members. Have an β€˜open door’ policy and encourage your colleagues to come to you whenever they need you and finally, share your insights and dreams, if you are not, who else will for you?

Chinese Whispers Run Rampant:

πŸ“ž Without clear communication channels, your team resorts to playing a game of whispers. Messages get lost in translation, rumours sprout like weeds, and suddenly, even your trusty PA thinks the quarterly report that was due yesterday had already been dispatched. Avoid the chaos by keeping those lines open and clear. Make sure that responsibility for messaging is clearly understood, establish norms for message timings and always stick to them yourself. Use OurSails to centralise the written information that your team shares with each other and you.

Creativity Takes a Nosedive:

🎨 Innovation thrives on collaboration, but when communication goes MIA, creativity follows suit. Your team members are bursting with brilliant ideas, but without a platform to share them, those lightbulb moments flicker out faster than a faulty fluorescent bulb. Keep the creative juices flowing by setting up meetings on OurSails that encourage the sharing of ideas and concepts, these act as your permanent whiteboards that you and your team can revisit when looking for inspiration.

Avoid the rocky waters of miscommunication by joining us at OurSails. Once you do, it will become much easier to enable transparency, foster collaboration, and keep the lines of communication wide open. Your team will thank you, the office chaos will simmer down, and Sanjit from accounting might even ditch the eyepatch.
