When you ask staff a question, do you get a long story, and perhaps no answer at all?

Jesus said "...let you statement be, yes, yes, or no, no." (Matthew 5:37 NAS) Failure to receive a direct answer will create confusion and poor communication. (23)

The failure to receive a direct answer is often based on a job uncompleted, or a customer not satisfied. Next time, during a long answer, stop the person, and state whether the answer is either a "Yes," or a "No." Develop the habit of insisting staffs respond, yes or no when asked. Then, ask follow up questions as necessary. Communication will improve.
