How many times do we expect others to know what is on our mind? Somehow, we assume others naturally know what we are thinking, as if they are a mind reader.
Leaders can make this mistake, if they are not careful.
People do not know what we are thinking unless we tell them.
Consider vision: Vision must be effectively communicated. People follow leaders who know where they are going and how to communicate that direction.
Expecting others to know what we think does not work. Communicate, and others will follow.
