Improve your communication skills and become a more flexible leader with Stephanie Mehta, Editor-in-Chief of Fast Company.
Effective conversations start with curiosity. Stop assuming you know what other people want. Instead, start getting curious about their goals and desires. Go into the conversation with the intent to listen and learn more.
Decision making in a silo is a really poor leadership strategy. Get as many different perspectives as you can before you make decisions. You will especially want to hear out the devil’s advocate—the person you don’t want to rope in because you’re afraid of their objections.
Bad delegation happens when you tip your to-do list onto someone else. Being a good delegator means thinking about what tasks and training can further someone else’s career. Delegation should be relationship-based. Plan to work closely with team members to improve or expand their roles.
