Most commonly ignored conversation

Do you know the most common conversation people (especially leaders) wish they had had sooner?
It’s the “What I think about you” conversation.
That might sound like a difficult conversation – and it would be if it was with someone you found difficult – but for most if the time it’s a great conversation. Mostly it looks like this, “hey, you know I think you’re really good at this, and I love if when you come and do these things. I feel safe when I know you’re doing this. I appreciate it.”
You didn’t think you needed to say those things to the people your leading did you?
That’s why you’re going to wish you did. Because they constantly tend towards thinking that you think the opposite.
So have that conversation. It’s worth it.
