Don’t assume!

You have a problem if you are quick at connecting the dots.

There is a downside to every strength.

If you are great at connecting the dots, then it’s amazing that you can:
⚪ create ideas out of nothing
⚪ troubleshoot problems
⚪ make quick decisions
⚪ learn new things easily

But!

As a personal example – I know I could be quite poor in active listening.

The problem is that midway through someone else’s sentence, I think I know what the person is saying.

I connect the dots.

Then, I stop listening and start thinking of my response.

More often than not, I am wrong with what was about to be said.

And that leads to conflict situations and then – poor relationships.

So…

Don’t assume!

Stop connecting the dots in all contexts. It’s not always a strength.

– Hari from the Gang

Hearing is listening to what is said.
Listening is hearing what isn’t said.

– Simon Sinek

You could practice your active listening skills with our Lost in Translation pill.

4 phrases for building trust

4_Words

These 4 working phrases for establishing a strong team environment are rarely heard. We wish you to hear them more and more often from your leaders.

All phrases express vulnerability and also encourage others to do the same. This way there will be more trust among the members of a team.

//from the book “The Fearless Organization” by Amy Edmondson

What are your expectation gaps?

🔵 What do you expect to see at the Taj Mahal?
🔵 What starting salary you expect a junior developer should have?
🔵 How much do you expect to pay for 1-day parking at a mall?

Whether we consciously know it – we all have expectation gaps!

Boss vs. Leader

The difference between a boss and a true leader in such a simple and beautiful sentence:

“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast endless sea.”

-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
