Leaders need to stop “beating around the bush.” People want leaders to be clear and specific about direction. When this happens, leaders pay close attention to details, which promotes confidence in followers.
Vagueness breeds vagueness and frustration. When leaders are vague, the general mindset among followers is that leaders do not have a clue where they are going or to get there.
Establishing a system by which leaders communicate with clarity and specificity strengthens the morale of an organization and provides confidence in the direction.
The need is obvious. Now is the time for leaders to develop and implement a plan to be clear and specific.
