Chances are you’re working today on a change that affects your team. How you implement that change will impact whether you meet your overall goals.
Here’s the mistake leaders can’t help but make: they wait to communicate. Until they have more information. Until they have “all the answers.” Until it’s often too late.
The result is that someone else is doing the talking – whether they’re right or wrong – and it’s feeding the grapevine. Worse yet, what employees then surmise is happening in their minds usually is much worse than the planned change.
