Make sure bad news travels fast

Cartoon of a woman whispering in another woman's ear who looks shocked

If bad news travels slowly in your organisation, then you have a problem. It means people are trying to hide mistakes or problems.

Why would they do that? Probably because there is a blame culture.

The result? The issue does not get addressed and the organisation does not learn and improve.

Do you work in a blame culture?

How do you know that?

What has to happen in your organisation, your department, your team for bad news to travel just as fast as good news?

How would you and your team benefit from bad news travelling fast?

Here’s a thought: I wonder if this applies to a family as well as an organisation?

My best wishes, Paul
