Chapter 15. Effective communication > Importance of communicating openly

Importance of communicating openly

In team communication, there is always the risk that a team member’s ideas might be disliked or rejected. Due to this risk, some individuals will be apprehensive about sharing their ideas. Others might state their ideas in vague terms, so they can withdraw the idea with little embarrassment if it is rejected.

When team members withhold their ideas, the team risks overlooking important issues. Without participation from all members, the team cannot reach its full potential. Therefore, it is important that a team create an environment in which all members can comfortably share their ideas.
