Relationships affected by drought

Yesterday I suggested that communication was like water - essential for ensuring effective relationships flourish. One of today's top headlines was "Trees still affected by 1976 drought" and stated that "the long dry spell that year killed off many drought-sensitive beech trees."   

In this situation too little water impacted the health of the trees. Yesterday's torrential downpour was equally as useful, with the water running off and not getting into the ground to feed the roots.

If you're not achieving your objectives because other people are any of the following it might just be you're being a little too much like the rain at the moment - too little or too much.
  • Being unsupportive
  • Not doing what you'd expect them to
  • Complaining
  • Blaming
  • Angry
  • Disengaged
  • Secretive 
How could you ensure your communication was more effective and enabled your relationships to flourish rather than wither and die? Do get in touch if you'd like to make your communication more effective.
