Are you a Knowledge Hoarder?

We all know a few.

In my field, they’re often the people who want to develop communication tools like presentations or articles or newsletters or blogs – but don’t want to include “valuable” information.

They’re missing the point. If you want your organization to be successful then you need to engage the people who are important to your success. And in order to engage these people, you need to be generous.This means you have to be prepared to share ideas, insights, findings and other information that is helpful to them.

Holding onto information because it is too valuable to share “for free” will brand you as a knowledge hoarder rather than a knowledge sharer.

Useless or useful? How do you prefer to be perceived?
