Disagreements emerge


It’s a fair bet that the number one reason people on your team don’t do the things you want them to do is that they don’t know what you want them to do.

Which is on you.

It means you haven’t had the conversation, or it hasn’t come to a conclusion, or one of you isn’t listening, or one of you doesn’t agree and the agreement hasn’t been ironed out, or, ultimately there remains a lack of clarity.

Most times though, it’s the lack of the conversation itself.

Have that, and conclusions have a chance to follow.

Have meaningful, listening-ful, conclusion creating conversations and agreements are likely to emerge. And even when disagreements emerge – at least they’re in sharp focus, right there in the middle of the table where everyone concerned can see them.

Skippy strategy: With things in sharp focus, all that’s left it to polish up the clarity.
