Inappropriate Communication!

Inappropriate communication was cited as the number one mistake leaders make.

Too often leaders either don’t communicate, overcommunicate, communicate inappropriately through outbursts, anger, or blaming, or simply don’t communicate clearly.

In addition, leaders may fail to communicate the vision in a way that is meaningful, assuming that direct reports intuitively understand the direction of the company and their role in making this happen.

Another critical mistake is lack of clear communication regarding roles, goals, expectations, and the importance of specific behaviors or goal accomplishment, all of which undermine individual productivity and performance.

In addition, failing to listen to feedback, ignoring alternative viewpoints, or failing to seek clarity through active listening can undermine leadership effectiveness and trust.
