Communicating expectations is supposed to be easy, right? You layout your expectations so that you and the people you’re working with are on the same page.
And when the time comes to examine whether the expectation is met (or not), you will know the cause or reason it is so.
But most of the time, we don’t communicate our expectations very well. Instead, we assume that other people listen to our internal narratives, and perhaps, they’ll pick up what we really want to achieve from our actions.
Do you know what happens when you assume?
You get hurt, most of the time, for unmet expectations.
Therefore, you need to communicate your expectations. And then, inspect what you expect. It could make all the difference.
