Be Nervous When Things Are Too Quiet

No news may mean bad news - Issue #37

As an introvert, there’s nothing better than being left alone to do your thing. No one is bothering you, or talking to you, and you can simply focus on your work every day. Ahhhhhh!

Even after decades of a career that benefited from frequent discussions, collaboration, and partnerships, I still easily slip into a state of comfortable solitude. I turn off my phone, and I’m happy that I’m being left alone.

No news is good news, right?

But, as I discovered early in my career, no news can be bad news. As an employee, if you’re not being kept in the loop, considered, or remembered, that’s bad.

It’s actually really bad.

As a leader, your silence is damaging.

As an entrepreneur, a quiet business is a dying business.
