Hidden costs of poor leadership communication

Hidden costs of poor leadership communication

When a colleague spends 10 seconds creating a poorly formatted email, with no context, it’s really annoying. You spend time trying to decipher the message and wonder why you don’t understand what’s going on. The same goes for meetings. Someone asks you a question in a meeting with a demeanour that suggests that […]

“Being thrown under the bus” is an expression I’ve been hearing fairly often over the last few years. If you’ve been thrown under the bus, it means that you’ve taken a fall for somebody else – the bus has rolled over you and you’re crumpled and broken, but the person who most deserved it is still […]

Slack has made the headlines in the last year, being purported as a potential email killer and the ultimate collaboration tool. However, opinions are mixed and some people have chosen to break up with Slack after a tumultuous relationship. I can imagine this is happening in MANY organisations around the world, particularly as the proliferation of […]

Ever had that nagging feeling that your team isn’t functioning as well as it could be? Things are getting missed, attention to detail is lacking and there seems to be a general lack of enthusiasm and resignation for the task at hand. A sense of urgency is a thing of the past. If you’re seeing […]

Every now and then the media comes out with a surprising story of corruption and mismanagement that prompts me to wonder at the state of some organisations. What really interests me is how these events actually occur, for I would imagine that it is fairly difficult to single-handedly perpetrate these actions without layers upon layers of corrupt […]

The working world is full of people trying to take your time and add tasks to your already full workload. The standard 40 hours in your contract are already assaulted by unscheduled meetings and administrative overhead that stop you from accomplishing what you are meant to be doing within that time, so you stay a little later.

It’s 9am and you wait quietly while your colleagues shuffle silently into the meeting room. At this time of the week, it’s a status update meeting. The last time somebody gave an unfavourable status report in this session, they were scrutinised to within an inch of their life, being grilled with question after question about why things weren’t going […]

Have you ever been in a situation where your team seems unmotivated, listless and lacking in enthusiasm? As a leader of any sort, it’s not a good situation to be in because your team is what gets the real work done and if they’re not interested, you’re likely to be in trouble. The signs of […]
