Your success depends on intelligence, yes, but more the emotional kind that you might be neglecting.
Recogition and feedback are not the same thing, so don't deliver them both in the same breath.
Beware: Smart, engaged employees can still fail at storytelling.
You can benefit from your peers and they can benefit from you. Why aren't you connecting?
If you default to training and workshops to fix every workplace problem, you may be missing issues of clarity and cullture.
The truth is, all business leaders are capable of giving a powerhouse presentation. All it takes is the right mindset, a well-crafted presentation with a strong core message and thorough preparation.
Not everyone wants to be agreeable, but you'll need to figure out how to work with them.
When you have the right mindset, you can push through discomfort and have the conversations that matter.
Communications and communication are both important parts of the workplace, but they aren't the same.
Too many one-on-one meetings about the leader talking and directing. Try a conversation about values and results where your report drives the conversation.
