50% of people have “no idea” or only “some idea” about what is expected from them at work (Gallup research, not opinion). Want to know the kicker: this isn’t only a rank-and-file problem. It turns out that only about 50% of managers know what is expected of them. How can this be? Well, we can only know what is expected of us if we have leaders that create and then communicate the expectations. Are you getting enough feedback at work? What if you got more. With more feedback we can tweak how we do things. We can improve. We can narrow the chasm between what the leader wants and what we are doing. Feedback becomes a tool for high performance.
