LLML NUMBER 5

Some of us are better at knowing the difference between valuable desired plants and worthless undesired weeds. More than once, I have mowed over something only later to learn from my better half that I had destroyed a valuable desired plant. This leads me to LLML (Leadership Lessons from Mowing the Lawn) Number 5:

Communicate with your team and all affected parties.

Leadership involves many responsibilities and they are all very important. However, without thorough communication throughout your network, everything you do will be hindered. People will not understand you without communication. People will not respond without communication. People will not know how to support you without communication. Communication is your leadership’s life blood.

When we are communicating properly, we maximize our odds of success with our network. When we are not communicating properly, we minimize our odds of success with our network. If I had been in better communication with my wife, then I probably would not have mowed over that valuable desired plant. LLML Number 5:

Communicate with your team and all affected parties.
