I believe many organizations, almost all organizations they’re looking to reduce this gap. The gap between what leaders are expecting from their subordinates and what subordinates are delivering.
Gap Between Leaders and Team Members Thought Process
Most of the time when we see this kind of gaps, of course, there is a lack of productivity because a role of leaders to give direction and the role of subordinates is to follow the direction and achieve what the companies and leaders want to achieve.
Of course, I also believe in this point, that leaders have to be a little flexible whenever they are giving direction and they should give opportunity to the subordinates to add their point also, whenever they’re executing.
Are Subordinates Always At Fault?
But whenever there is a gap like this, most of the time leaders believe this, this gap is because subordinates are not executing the things the way they want. Maybe the reason behind this is lack of skills, lack of intention, lack of interest.
Could You As a Leader Be Lacking The Skill To Communicate Expectations?
But have you ever thought like this as a leader that maybe I am not able to persuade, I’m not able to convince, I am not able to influence, I’m not able to impress my team members the way I’m putting my direction in front of them.
Is There A scope of Improvement?
Maybe there’s a scope of improvement there. I must tell you, the last 20 years, I got an opportunity to work with many leaders and I see not every time when there is a gap, only subordinates are responsible.
Sometimes even leaders are responsible for this gap.
