The Buddy System

Use the buddy system when preparing communication. Effective communicators often
will have someone who reads over and checks written and oral communication before
it’s distributed. This may reveal some conceptual errors (such as misinterpretations, or
missing pieces) and technical errors (such as spelling, grammar). A friendly critic provides
constructive and actionable feedback.

So what?

As C.S. Lewis once said, “Two heads are better than one, not because either is
infallible, but because they are unlikely to go wrong in the same direction.” As each person
performs duties for the other, the communication skills of each will be enhanced.
