Think of  tune. Now try and get someone to guess what it is just by tapping out the rhythm with your finger.  It will seem obvious to you.  It will be impossible for them. This is what it’s like being a boss using the usual internal communications ‘tools’. This is what it’s like being the people trying to make sense of what she really means web link. Context is everything.


Like playing Pictionary, if your team doesn’t guess the answer from your drawing, it’s no use just  jabbing at it repeatedly with your pencil while making urgent faces. Draw something else.

Better still, because life isn’t Pictionary, sing it. Act it, dance it, yodel it, sculpt it, cook it as a meal.  Do whatever it takes for them to get it.  Because that’s what’s important, them getting it (not you saying it).
