The reason it’s difficult to over-communicate is not just because communication takes energy and is tricky to get right (both of which are true).
It’s because to get to the point where you’ve communicated information so completely that more communication would be bad… takes a LOT of communication.
Even under ideal circumstances, people often need to hear the same message multiple times before they get it.
Communicating in a biotech organization, is the opposite of ideal circumstances.
When a message is traveling from a source with one background to an audience with a different one, it may take the audience multiple tries to adjust their mental models.
If you find you’re repeating yourself, that isn’t over-communication.
That’s the nature of the work.
