In organizations "Those who speak do not know and those who know do not speak"


This sentence strikes me and connects me to the importance of the political game within companies and the difficulty of creating openness and efficient communication.

Organizations suffer from the lack of communication between people, from the lack of shared learning within teams.

The internal competition, the pressure and stress levels experienced day after day in companies greatly limit team performance and team members’ development potential...

On one hand, the newly promoted need to learn their job and develop in their roles.
On the other hand, the experienced collaborators have a deep understanding and a detailed knowledge that enable them to perform their jobs in an automated way.

If the two are able to exchange in an open and humble mindset they will be able to learn from each other: one providing expertise, the other the freshness of a new and curious perspective.

Unfortunately we rarely see that level of clear openness and  efficient sharing attitude. And for managers the reliable information is not always available where it should be.

Organizations no longer need obedient and individualistic employees.
They need people who are present 100 percent. Collaborators who are committed and able to interact actively and fluidly.

They don’t need dependent and individualistic resources.
But interdependent, authentic and action driven personalities.

"Those who speak do not know and those who know do not speak"
What do you think? Is there any truth in this sentence for you?
