Sinking or swimming in the tsunami of communication overload?

Every day, in every way, we’re bombarded with information. While some of it comes in bite-size portions via tweets or texts, a fair amount comes from within the workplace, in moderate sized-morsels. And like any snack or meal, too much may not be a good thing. Information overload is fed by meeting minutes, reports or other documents loaded with corporate speak and padding – the going forward, push back, socialising the issues, back stories and other such gems – and calling a spade anything but a spade. Make it easy for people to easily comprehend and digest information by using plain English and a generous helping of exactitude, on the side.
