If you don't expect too much from me, you might not be let down
Sep 29, 2020
Hello and welcome to Episode 29 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
In todays episode we talked about expectations, both those you have of your staff and those your team have of you. I shared with you one of my all time favourite lines from a song “If you don’t expect too much from me, you might not be let down” (Gin Blossoms - Hey Jealousy), and how I see this show up so often in workplaces.
Often, when there is an issue at work, with a team member or with anything, the root cause can be traced back to the expectation that was set – it was unrealistic, and therefore setting you and them up for failure, and ultimately the snow ball of that breakdown in the working relationship can be catastrophic.
We discuss when you need to set expectations and some practical strategies for setting realistic and measurable expectations. We also referred to a previous episode where I interviewed Shandra Moran from The Transit Lounge and we discussed tolerance and boundaries, you can listen to that episode here:
