Want to avoid miscommunications and set clearer expectations for your team? Watch this.

Welcome back to Part III of this month’s 2020 Vision series.

In Part I, we talked about goals and how to get clear on which skills YOU need to develop this year to tackle all your to-dos in less time with less stress.

Missed it? Snag that free goal-setting worksheet here.

In Part II, we talked about how painting clearer pictures (and using a certain 3-letter-word) can help you engage your listener and articulate yourself more skillfully no matter the situation.

Today, we’re focusing on how to set clearer expectations.

When you have multiple team members working on the same project (or versions of the same project), it’s easy to get stuck in sticky miscommunications about who’s responsible for what, and what following through really means.

If you’ve ever felt like:

  • Your team is dismissing your requests (or worse, ignoring them!)
  • People on your team don’t know how (or when) to ask for help  
  • You’ve asked for the support you need, but the support you got was either unrelated to your question or led to more work on your plate…

You’re not alone and this video is for YOU. 

Watch this quick clip to learn my favorite miscommunication squasher AND the simplest way to communicate expectations and project updates along the way…

Once you’ve watched, I’d love to hear from you!

Tell me: How might you use this technique to set clearer expectations within your team?

In the meantime, keep showing up as that YOU you most want to be. One intention and one interaction at a time. 

All my love,

    I love this. We could really use those “code words.” I’m going to raise this at a team meeting this week. Thanks for the inspiration.

      That’s awesome, Kelly. Keep me posted on how it goes!

    I just forwarded this to my whole team!

      Love it! Thanks Robin!

    This is a really helpful and practical take on Brene’s idea. Also what a great coincidence that you have such similar names.

      I’m so glad, Greg. And yes, it’s my favorite coincidence because I admire her so much!
