Someone Sounding Like Elder Maxwell

Every so often, one runs across a sentiment that strikes a chord that someone else said elsewhere. A week or so ago, I ran across an informative article (well worth the read) that echoed something Elder Maxwell once said. Here is the article's version:
In well run organizations, information runs from the top down and from the bottom up.
Here is Elder Maxwell's version (from All These Things Shall Give Thee Experience (1980), 77-78:
We ought to listen as carefully to those we supervise as to those who supervise us. You and I are usually pretty good at paying attention upward, but we are not nearly as good at
heeding that which comes from other directions.
