If your team are not comfortable enough around you to be honest, feel safe admitting mistakes or even advocating for their own needs, then I can tell you now, you are going to have a tough time achieving real long-term success, productivity and innovation.
If you have ever felt the frustration of silence in the face of mishaps from your team, hold the mirror. As a leader, the onus is on you to cultivate an environment where speaking up is the norm, not the exception. Be the reason your team isn’t just a group of individuals, but a powerhouse of collective brilliance. Be the advocate for openness and transparency, and watch your team thrive.
