Just about anyone will perform more effectively if they know the end game, the prize, the ultimate goal. So, why is it we keep people in the dark?
Managers, department heads, executives and business owners who give top-down orders without explanation are in for a struggle. It would be far easier to take a moment to explain the change or the new strategy.
Explain the research, what the numbers are telling you.
Explain the marketplace, how it's changing and how that's affecting business.
Explain the new approach, why it has a chance to succeed if everyone pulls together to make it happen.
So, are you connecting the dots?
Setting the tone and keeping everyone on task is just part of a leader's job. Another part is making sure people know the "why."
The "why" just may help them discover the "how."
