Here’s the thing. If you want to succeed in your business, you have to set expectations and learn to communicate. You have to learn how to communicate well.
This is something that I see in my coaching clients day in and day out. It’s a challenge that many of my clients seem to be having right now. We all know that being a good communicator is an art, but it is something that most people aren’t doing, or even learning.
In most cases, we hear that the communication gap between you and your boss is going to be the difference between you getting hired and getting laid off. Many of us have heard the phrase “the road to the moon is paved with good intentions.” What this means is that if you are a good communicator, a strong presentation, and a good listener, you will have a very good chance of being hired by your employer.
Communication for results is all about communication, and the art of getting the results you want is what separates great communicators from the not-so-great. A great communicator is able to talk to your boss, and make his or her decision based on the information you give, rather than what you think you should be telling him or her.
Communication for results is all about information. A good communicator is able to tell an employer what you think you should actually be telling him or her. And the skills of a good listener include being able to learn about the company, and taking the information you get to be a useful part of the process. But an awful communicator will use the information that they get to be a way to convince the employer to do whatever it is they want to do.
Communication for results isn’t about selling. It’s about helping people to understand the situation. It’s about the process of finding out what the best solution is for both parties. It’s about being able to work with people to make the best possible outcome for everyone.
The fact is that most of us do this too often, but it’s a real problem that can be solved with practice and a little bit of skill. We are trained to think that people are rational beings with rational beliefs, and that their best interests are the only things that should guide their decisions. But even when we think we know what is best for someone, we often end up doing things that are not in their best interest.
It can be said that the average person does not have a clue what is best for anyone, and that is where people can be helped. There are two ways to fix this. First, we can make a decision. But it may be the wrong decision. For example, if you decide that giving up some of your free time to your boss is not in your boss’s best interest, you may have made the wrong decision. Second, we can look at people’s actions.
So we should always question what is best for others, and we should always try to give them a choice, but it is important to make a decision. In business, the person who is doing a good job is the person who is the most likely to succeed. In the professions people are often working in, it is important to look at individuals’ actions and see if they are doing a good job.
In business, you will get what you put into the business. We’ll discuss what “good” looks like in business in a later section. In the professions, it means people are working at their best, no matter what. In the end, the person who is most likely to succeed will be that one person.
