How to Set Explicitly Clear Expectations to Prevent Disappointment

Is everyone clear on what your expectations are? And are you clear on what others are expecting from you?

Are you sure?

In episode 472, Lynae Remondino and I covered the importance of asking clarifying questions to prevent misunderstandings. For a variety of reasons, it’s almost too easy for misunderstandings to occur.

On almost any given workday you can probably find an example in which you thought you were clear with someone that they were to do X, Y and Z and instead they did X, Y and M. The culprit is unclear expectations.
