Lateral Communications Can Be A Key To The Success Of A Company Operating Efficiently At The Senior Staff Level!! ─ Law #63
Managers who compartmentalize their staff, by having communications bounce back and forth, are dangerous and will not gain the most from the staff members.
Insecure managers tend to compartmentalize their staff. They also tend to listen to the last person who has whispered in their ear.
Peers should work out their common problems among themselves. Senior management should make it clear that they hold their staff members responsible for keeping their conflicts with one another out of his/her inbox.
