Hey Fletch … I am struggling with how directive to be with my staff in terms of “expectations”?
DRF—For me, setting expectations is one of collaboration. I find that when I can have a discussion with someone, many times they set great expectations.
When I turn leaders loose in their area of giftedness, I generally find that they need coaching, not a foot on the gas pedal. I weave my personal expectations into the discussion, so that in the end, we arrive at a good product.
Talk with your staff. Open the door for them to set high expectations. The discussion will be fruitful.
