Not many notice how information rolls down hill.
We tell friends and family about nifty new ideas or gadgets we hear on the news or internet. The information rarly goes up hill? What is the ratio of news or ideas you tell to friends v.s. your boss or supervisor?
Would you walk into another department and tell a co-worker about something? Would you walk into another department and tell the director or manager the same thing?
What I’m trying to say is we may share more with those at our level or below than above our level or station. Yet it is those above who are looking for new ideas.
What do you think?
