Do you ever do something really well in one context and then rubbish in another?
I'm often asked to host training for Managers around the topic of SETTING EXPECTATIONS. (It's something I do very naturally in work mode.) My best bit of advise...
'Get people to clarify back what they think you have asked them to do!'
This way they have to think through the process and vocalise it, and you can then listen out for things that need to be further discussed.
I asked my 8 yr old Son to make is own sandwich for lunch. I didn't set any expectations, I didn't ask him to clarify back what he was going to make, the result...
a marshmallow and jellybean sandwich!
