The standard model of communication has evolved based on two parties-the sender and the receiver-exchanging information or ideas.
The way you communicate can determine the level of trust that your colleagues or customers have in you.
Always communicate in a timely manner and in the method that your customer prefers.

Why They want to know the reasons
What They want to know the facts
How They want only the information they need
What if They want to know the consequences
