Quote: “Ambiguity is the Antithesis of a Successful Outcome”

One of the best IT Business Leadership Strategies I’ve heard recently …. 

 … is the importance of giving direct & clear communications to your teams.

Especially with remote communications where body language is harder to convey, leaders need to be clear about their expectations and maintain an open dialogue at each step.

George Prior, VP of IT at Whitney, Bradley & Brown (WBB), shares some innovative approaches to providing clear remote communications.
