LIMPIDITY (read time :45 sec)
In my years of running a business and leading a staff of smart people I learned early that if I asked an employee for a red pen and they brought me a blue one, the problem was not them—it was me! Somewhere in the communication that I wanted a pen, the “red” part was not given the clarity it needed to make it to my desk (with the rest of the pen). Eventually I learned the hard way (over many years) that in my everyday interaction with staff, partners, employees and especially customers, that “Limpidity” provides a no-hype, straightforward path to career success and personal achievement. Limpidity insists on cooperation, quickens response time, provokes clarity, and delivers exceptional results...Fast! So the next time you’re making a request, whether it’s for a red pen or a loan, be sure your communication is Limpid!

| So true |
Clear communication is everything. So much time is wasted and so many disappointing mistakes are made due to mis-communications and mis-understandings.

So true, but so hard to practice. When I ask an employee to do something and they donít, I always think itís THEM. The truth is itís me, not being specific enough, or clear enough or confident enough. It's a tough one to get your head around.
