Here is the secret to getting people to read your mind.. TELL them.
Do you get upset when employees, team members, or clients don't "get it right"?
It should be obvious, after all!
But what if it isn't? What if what is obvious to YOU is not as clear to others?
What if the only way to ensure full understanding is to clearly, openly and honestly communicate what you expect, what and how you want things done?
Are you willing to do that?
- Leave no room for assumptions
- Own your expectations
- Empower others to meet your expectations
It might be uncomfortable at first, but the results are 100% worth it.
- You save time
- You minimize the probability of mistakes
- You gain trust and respect from others
Communication is one of the most important leadership skills, and yet it's not something we are taught how to do.
What is the appropriate timing and format?
Who is the right audience?
What is the optimal tone?
What is active listening?
What is the best way to deliver constructive feedback that empower performance?
