Are difficult chats held in your business?

Lately I am finding that business owners and leaders are more and more hesitant to have a difficult conversation for various reasons.

The worst thing you can do is to ignore it and hope that it will go away – it generally will not.

So, what happens when you do not?

· Team engagement drops

· You lose credibility

· You lose respect

· Other team members lower their standards

My question to leaders who do not provide feedback or have the difficult conversations is always; why would you stifle someone’s ability to grow and be better tomorrow than they were today?

It is your privilege and duty as a leader to impart knowledge you have acquired.

And it works both ways. It is not a one-way street.

You should encourage your team to have difficult chats with you as well.

It is important to seek feedback from those around you. As a leader, it is vitally important to keep learning, asking for input to improve your own performance.

Surround yourself with the right people; those that are honest with you, those that want you to be a better leader.
