Dear Leaders and Managers,
Are you committed to creating a culture of trust and collaboration?
If you answered yes, when was the last time you asked your team members:
✔ What are two to three things I can do differently to improve my leadership?
✔ How can I make our working relationship more effective?
✔ How are things going for you since we last spoke?
✔ What are the biggest challenges you’re facing?
✔ How can I support you?
✔ How’s the morale around you?
✔ How aligned do you feel with the company mission, vision, values?
✔ What is the most fulfilling aspect of your job?
✔ Are we providing enough growth opportunities for your role? If not, what’s missing?
✔ What’s something you want the C-Suite to know about you?
✔ What is one thing about our product or service you would improve?
We depend on people to help move our companies forward. When there is an absence of trust and collaboration, people are less willing to come together and often make disappointing progress.
It makes sense to have an authentic curiosity about the people we are delegating responsibilities to and to provide a safe environment to give/receive genuine constructive feedback.
