Miscommunication is one of the reasons for having friction and unhealthy employee relations in an organization. A negative post of an annoyed employee due to internal miscommunication can spread faster than fire. You can prevent these damaging effects even before it starts by engaging your organization in a question-asking culture.

On today’s episode, I’m going to discuss the advantages of introducing and having a methodical, non-threatening approach of question-asking in your organization. I’ll explain how my superiors and I used this method and how this approach made our connection stronger. I’ll also share some practical tips on how you can start creating this healthy atmosphere within your team to encourage camaraderie and result in more productivity.
