I am familiar with his coach from soccer related activities. In my own dealings with the coach I have found him to be evasive in responding to certain questions and circumstances. Indecisiveness is no way to lead. It might be because he doesn't want to hurt anyones feelings. Maybe he is not confident in the position he has taken on specific matters. I certainly cannot speak for him. These are questions he should answer, but if he refuses to we have little recourse.
Communication must be clear, concise and purposeful. Open, Honest and Sincere. If communication is found lacking in any of these areas it will be ineffective.
