Open communication is not about sharing all there is to know about a particular topic. It’s also not about sharing all of the related information on a subject. That’s simply oversharing and can lead to information overload.
Effective communicators provide you with the information you need when you want it and place it within a specific context. Without context, the information can lose relevance and impact.
As you figure out what to say think of the outcome that you want to create. What choice of words, tone, and timing will give you the most value for your audience?
Clarity of thought and approach is a powerful tool to shape narratives and opinions.
