Davidisms - What People Aren't Up On, They're Down On

This is a leadership principle I’ve learned over the years: Communicate and communicate and communicate - again and again! It’s always better to communicate too much than to not communicate well enough. Why? Because when people aren’t told what is happening, they fill in the blanks themselves. And often the information they’re filling in the blanks with is wrong. Hence, what people aren’t up on, they’re down on. Communicate wisely and often from the start! Prudent, discerning leaders do so (Proverbs 15:2). Over communicating from the beginning prevents gossip and wagging tongues - often the source of malignant rumors - ones that lead people with good intentions down a harmful road. Become a wise leader! Make good use of clear information. Communicate honestly, openly, and often. That’s because, once again, what people aren’t up on, they’re down on.
