Disasters from Mis-Communication

this is an audio post - click to play

Too often, we are only half listening to what people are saying.
This can be because we believe we know what the other person is going to say or because our mind is on something else. Sometimes we think we understood, but don't clairify to find out if infact we did hear it right.

    Other things that cause mis-communication are:

  • Ineffective listening

  • Noise

  • Meaning in words

  • Language

  • Gatekeeping

  • Appearances

Never the less, too often disasters happen because of mis-communication and the lack of clarification. It is up to you to do something about it.

I know about an example when the supervisor, who while heading out for the night, said, "Don, turn off the suds machine" Don thought he heard, "Don't turn off the suds machine", so he shrugged and thought, Ok and walked on. Check out the results of a miss-communciation at an airport hanger.
