Communication Pet Peeves Results are In

The results are in for our communication Pet Peeve survey, and the winner is: 

– Staying silent and complaining later. 

The very close second is:


– Being blind-sided because people didn’t tell me about problems.

Both submitters will receive a free year-long subscription to my “Say What You Mean eCourse.” Thanks for playing.

Interesting that the highest scoring bad practices are both passive behaviors. We tend to think overly-aggressive communicators are the ones who create the problems. This survey indicates otherwise.

I didn’t get enough submissions on the good communication practices to start a competition for that, but if people post enough, I’ll create one for that. You can post about communication practices that you like here.
