Communication can be challenging, and farm operations are no exception to that rule. When the pressure is on to get things done on the farm, that’s when communication needs to be running smoothly, but that’s also when it can tend to break down the most. Maybe time is running short and we think we’ve explained something in a crystal clear way to an employee, yet find out later that they misunderstood us in some way. It can be frustrating to feel like you’ve explained something multiple times but the message still doesn’t seem to be getting through.
