Four Questions Your Team Members Are Asking

Four Questions Your Team Members Are Asking

My team, your team are asking questions. They might not verbalize them, but they are asking.

The questions are:

  • What am I supposed to do?
  • Will you let me do it?
  • Will you help me when I need it?
  • Will you let me know how I am doing?

From the very beginning of trying to fill a position and throughout a lead/follower relationship, paid or volunteer, any leader would be wise to keep these questions near and refer to them often.  The questions can help us who lead to:

  • Communicate the expectations of the task.
  • Empower those assigned the task.
  • Support the volunteer or staff when help is needed.
  • Stay out of the way when we are not needed.
  • Evaluate honestly the performance.

Are there other questions that should be added to the list?
