In a team setting, it is easy to simply tell someone something and expect that communication to be sufficient. Unfortunately, telling someone something only conveys a limited amount of necessary information. It’s difficult to sufficiently describe everything that is in our head in a verbal way. It is even more difficult to find the time to thoroughly write it out. A large part of team training is often skipped in the “show” phase. People learn through many different modalities and it always helps to give a visual demonstration of a concept that is verbally conveyed. In the hustle and bustle of every team, it is easy to abdicate the need to properly train someone. Those who take the time to tell and show someone how to do something experience confidence that in turn promotes competence at a much quicker rate.
