Visibility Should Come Naturally

When you are part of a team, providing visibility on what your work is far from trivial. It’s even harder to provide the correct amount of visibility, not making too much clutter and not working in silence. Visibility is one of the most important traits for a team that aim to achieve an effective progress. It doesn’t really matter whether you are the CEO or the newest employee, all of you should strive to find the right amount for visibility - bottom up and also top down.

While companies can enforce the employee for some kind of visibility by using tools, forms, procedures and processes, the best visibility is achieved when it comes naturally, and for this to happen two cultural attributes are required:

  1. You should be excited from your work, from your creation, from what you’ve been spending most of your day to accomplish.

  2. You should have an audience who is excited from your work, from your creation, from what you’ve been spending days to accomplish.
    When you have that spirit in your workplace, visibility will come naturally.
