I need you to give me a signal

Whether you are my boss’-boss’-boss, my boss, my direct report, my colleague or the vendor I’ve hired, I need you to communicate.

A tweet, a post, vine, screen-sized email, video. I don’t care about the medium, but I care that we’re working together and you’re doing something that matters.

I’m not looking for a speech or all the under the hood details. All I need is concise, regular, snapshots that tell me we’re on the same page or invite a conversation to get on the same page.

The influence, the contracts, the exciting problems to solve all go to those that figure out how to build little, but significant, signals into their daily/weekly routine and workflow.

Signals lead to influence which leads to change.
