Women Taking the Lead

Mar 8 2023 • 35 mins

Is everyone clear on what your expectations are? And are you clear on what others are expecting from you?

Are you sure?

In episode 472, Lynae Remondino and I covered the importance of asking clarifying questions to prevent misunderstandings. For a variety of reasons, it’s almost too easy for misunderstandings to occur.

On almost any given workday you can probably find an example in which you thought you were clear with someone that they were to do X, Y and Z and instead they did X, Y and M. The culprit is unclear expectations.

In this episode I have Lynae back and we are discussing:

·         How to make sure your expectations are explicitly clear.

·         Why accountability is so important and what can go wrong without it.

·         How to get better at creating and honing clear expectations.
