When we speak to others about ideas and respond to their plans, we should never come across as arrogant or “know-it-alls”. It often happens without intending to do so.
When we do speak, keep these pieces in mind:
1. Speak confidently, and not with an arrogant tone. No one will listen if spoken down to.
2. Emphasize positives. If someone did something well – acknowledge it. If something didn’t go well, share how you would like to see the outcome improved – and let them know you believe they can do it- only if you feel they’re capable. If you find they may need help, add someone with the right strengths and share why they could be helpful.
3. Listen, listen, listen. Don’t only ask how things are going when you make time. Keep the door open for when questions and ideas pop up. Embrace the opportunity to demonstrate to your team personalities of a great leader. Be available and develop your teams.
