Busy with Buzzwords: Over-communicate
Over-Communicate: This word was mentioned more than a couple of times last week, and a few incidents at work made me realize its value, and its definitely something I need to do more of. I think of it as
- sharing information, accomplishments and credit with more people than just the strictly necessary
- inviting feedback and scrutiny from everyone who you think might be able to help (even if you know it'll slow you down)
- never naturally assuming that people have read either emails you sent out, documents your wrote or presentations you gave, but subtly confirming it.
And while I'm still trying to nail down what "Googley" actually means, this seems like a pretty Googley thing to do.
