When you’re in a position of leadership, you know there are actions happening behind the scenes. The rest of your team is oblivious to these happenings.
Unfortunately, when they’re happening in secret, your team doesn’t understand the reasons you’re making the choices you’re making.
This may lead to you being viewed as a bad leader. What you need to do is to help your team to understand what’s happening.
In a recent post about bad leadership, I mentioned a couple of things you may be doing that causes your team to think you’re leading poorly. This post is a great example of why you need to help your team understand the inner workings of the business.
You don’t have to go into the deep details but you should at least explain a few key points of the business to your team. This can prevent a lot of grief and agony.
