̀ The Laws of Communication should be used to train managers and leaders in business organizations because there are clear-cut lines between danger, risky leadership, and success. Hopefully, each leader wants to be successful, and the Laws of Communication clearly spell out what to strive towards in the green zone.
̀ I enjoyed reading and learning about the laws of communication and it impact on employee and overall organizational efforts. The zones are a great tool to help us to see the impact of each type of communication. This tool could be very useful for management training.
̀ It was surreal to see how each comment for the red zone fit my situation. My boss portrays an attitude that he does not care about the work of our organization and is very lackadaisical. This causes a lack of motivation/ focus and most certainly despair! He is unwilling to even greet his employees each day and does not share important information that needs to be known to get work done. I enjoyed the reading the first chapter in the Laws of Communication and would love to read the whole book!
̀ It’s important for all levels of an organization to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the communication process.
̀ The Laws of Communication provide all leaders with a valid understanding of how communication is essential for any organization.
̀ The Laws of Communications’ stoplight metaphor did a wonderful job of illustrating what works and does not work in the workplace. I really hope these examples are used in some training courses because everyone that is a leader should be educated about them.
̀ Intelligence is often perceived by the way a person communicates. This is one reason why it is so important to be a good communicator and not only speak well, but have the ability to listen effectively.
̀ The Laws of Communication made me rethink my communication skills and how often I provide feedback to employees. Red zone behavior is not acceptable and does not foster a healthy work environment in which creativity and innovation thrive.
̀ I found the Laws of Communication very insightful, particularly where it stated that communication and performance are correlated and the success of one begets the success of the other. I have always felt that I owe some credit to my strong communication skills, if not all, to the success I have achieved in my career.
̀ As I analyzed my current organization, I definitely felt as if we fell into the yellow zone. I have a new manager who is open and would like to move us to the green zone. However, our main supervisor falls into the red zone, which counteracts my manager’s efforts.
