My favorite coaching assignment for Alaka‘i Managers (second to the Daily Five Minutes, and much easier to learn) is this one, reserved for the last 15 minutes of their workday.
- Answer this question: Who is waiting to hear from me?
- Make that call, preferably in person or on the phone. Give them whatever update you have.
Cultivate this simple two-step as a daily workplace habit, and I guarantee you you’ll be known as the best communicator people know.
We managers don’t share information half as much as we should, and seemingly small habits like this one make a BIG difference.
Try it, and see what happens to your reputation as an Alaka‘i Manager.
