Too often we sit back and put others in charge of our emotions and abilities. Doing this produces a mentality where you can think - "I’d like to have more authentic conversations but I can’t, because my boss doesn’t know how to."
This way of thinking can quickly lead to feeling less engaged or motivated to do what you feel you need to do. Why? Because you give all the power to someone else in the situation.
The good news is that you don't actually have to wait for your boss to be a better communicator for you to start. This week when you notice yourself yearning for change, move to action, and be accountable to yourself and those you engage with. Be the one to take the first step and model the kind of interaction that you want to have.
The results may surprise you.
