“On the 8th day of Christmas a Manager said to me…
WHY AREN’T THEY LISTENING?“
🌟(Sing along to the 12 days of Christmas song!)🌟
(7) I don’t have time to do this!”
(6) Another 4-box model?
(5) DO I REALLY HAVE TO DO THESE 1:1’s?
(4) What can I delegate?
(3) How do I give feedback?
(2) Who are my team?
(1) I don’t know what’s expected of me!
Managers often feel their suggestions and comments aren't being taken seriously, either by their team members or by more senior managers. This is usually because they are simply not using the right language
⛄️ Consider things from the viewpoint of the person you are communicating with.
⛄️ Team Members respond better when they know WHY they are being asked to do something.
⛄️ Senior Managers respond better when they understand the impact to the bigger picture.
⛄️ Tailor your message to different people for a better result.
🎄Keep a look out for further days of Christmas to help develop Manager skills!🎄
