The risks associated with poor communication:

  • It can make you or your business seem unprofessional.
  • It can send a warning signal to your customers that you are disorganized or unreliable, which erodes trust.
  • It can be time consuming. 
  • It can result in financial loss (lost revenue, lost assets, lost time).
  • It can have serious consequences, such as injury (and/or litigation).
  • It can damage relationships (with your coworkers, your community, your customers, your peers, or your suppliers).
