Effective communication is central to a shared vision of organizational objectives. Why is it that communication always seem to flow more smoothly in some organizations than others ? One reason is that the prevailing communication climate directly influences the extent to which communication is a positive or negative force in the organization. An open or supportive communication climate promotes co-operative working relationships, and is therefore conducive to effective information gathering and transfer.
