I wanted to find out through a poll what others see as been the number one reason for communicating. The results were surprising and was not what I expected.
As the poll result shows, most people stated that their number one reason is “building relationship”.
Here are a couple of comments:
1. “In my opinion, building relationships is the start of everything, love, friendship, networking, sales, all of them start with building relationships.”
2. “To get buy in and support for your change initiative.”
We encourage anyone who interact with stakeholders for business or working on a project, it is best to think about your primary reason to communicate and plan your iteration around your main goal.
