Communication & Input
We all want to feel heard. When we don’t have the opportunity to weigh-in on a decision that affects our work, it’s frustrating. And when we do feel heard—when we have offered input on a decision or project—we are more likely to want to see it succeed.
As a manager, proactively asking your staff for input ensures they feel heard, share ideas, and increases the likelihood they are invested in the success of projects. Your staff have first-hand experience about what’s working well (and not so well) with current processes. Creating an avenue for input engages your staff and helps them share innovative suggestions.
