Great leaders tailor the amount & detail of information to each employee.
These leaders know that using a "cookie cutter" approach (the exact same message given to all) will not meet the needs of the majority of the team.
What's the best way to know how to communicate? Ask for feedback!
Asking for feedback is usually not comfortable. Many leaders shy away from asking for feedback because they think it might make them look weak.
Getting feedback is the best way to ensure you are giving each employee the kind of information that they need. Feedback can be negative or positive.
While most of us like positive feedback, negative feedback is more useful because it gives us specific areas to alter and improve.
The next time you consider giving everyone the same message, ask for feedback on the best way & amount to communicate. It will make you a better leader and you'll have a better informed team!
