Business Communications and BBQ Sauce

In America, BBQ is sacred. Many people enjoy eating flavorful barbecued meat that includes mouth-watering ribs, brisket, sausage, pork, chicken, and more. And right alongside that BBQ comes a healthy helping of homemade BBQ sauce.

But for those out of the loop, let’s back it up.

There’s a large number of different barbecue sauces available all through the country. South Carolina BBQ pitmasters prefer a zingy, mustard-based sauce to dress their cuts of meat. In Kansas City, the key elements to a traditional sauce include ketchup, molasses, and liquid smoke.

There are many more BBQ sauces throughout the nation. Debates have raged on for years as to which one is the best of all. Naturally, we try to stay as impartial as possible. Each sauce demands respect for its unique flavor. Since we’re located in Texas, we’ll let you in on a little secret…

Texas has the best sauce of all.

The Texan Way

The traditional Texas barbecue sauce is made up of many complementary parts. Typically, it will include tomato sauce, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, and some form of spicy pepper (such as jalapeño or ancho chilies).

These ingredients come together to create a sum that is far greater than the individual parts. Each spice has a part to play in the final taste and finish of the completed sauce. In other words, when you miss out on ingredients, your sauce is simply not as good as it could be.

The same logic isn’t exclusive to BBQ sauces and pitmasters. When it comes to your business, you must be conscious of each individual aspect of your day-to-day operations – specifically, your business communication.

The Importance of Business Communications

Without the proper communication “ingredients” working together, you’ll end up with a watered-down and ineffective platform. Having ineffective business communication hurts your overall productivity and creates unnecessary communication clutter.

For an organization to achieve its goals, they must invest in their communication. Each and every communication attempt that happens both internally and externally aims to achieve a goal. It’s irrelevant whether that goal is simply getting information from a coworker or closing an important deal with a client.

The common theme of these communications is that if they fail, the company suffers. Work gets done slower, deals don’t get closed, and ROI goes out the window. 26% of employees think email is a major productivity killer. With too many unfocused channels available for communication, your organization suffers from message overload.
