Assessment of the situation to devise a game plan for things to come to fruition.

On August 2, 2016 the Rio Olympics gave us a gift—the perfect metaphor for the intersection of absurdity and danger—a kayaker capsized after hitting a rogue sofa in Guanabara Bay.  Apparently, although highly skilled and highly trained, this particular kayaker had no knowledge or training for what he should do should he encounter submerged furniture during a race. And what about scoring? Does the kayaker who doesn’t encounter a couch have an advantage? And what if it’s really a daybed that has been misrepresented in the media?

Both the CFO and the CEO stuck their hand into the air as I concluded my keynote and called for questions. “Why don’t employees communicate up in an organization?” There was a little more than a twinge of frustration in the CEO’s question.  The CFO added his nod of dismay.

It’s a common conundrum in the C-suite—even from the brightest leaders in the boardroom.  The issue deserves serious thought because when downward communication dominates, problems go unresolved and innovation stalls.

The Republican National Convention came to Cleveland and literally left with a bang . . . of fireworks shot over Lake Erie. The city learned lessons in security-police on bicycles are the most fluid to how to move masses of people-have every non-essential downtown employee work from home. We can learn from these communication lessons and apply them in our daily lives.
