In my last blog, I talked about the benefits to organizations and employees when leaders clearly communicate the results they need to make the company successful. I covered the 5Cs of straightforward communications for leaders that build authenticity and improve performance.
Do you say what you mean or do you expect employees to read your mind? Feeling selfish or uncomfortable about being direct negatively impacts how you relate to your team and adds confusion. If you are unsure or unclear, the team members assigned to following through on tasks will be unsure and unclear. The blog post by Dr. John Townsend provides insight into how and why leaders need to be clear about their expectations.
