Difficult questions

To truly understand what’s happening in your company, you need to ask difficult questions and be willing to hear the honest answers. Don’t rely on vague emails or assurances that your door is always open.

Employees are often hesitant to speak up because they don’t trust their boss or fear losing their job. To build trust, ask specific questions such as, “What can we improve in the way we communicate?” or “Is there anything you worked on recently that you wish to go through together?” The more you ask and listen, the more your employees will trust you and be willing to share their concerns.
