I want to hang this tweet on my office wall. If you’re leading other leaders, don’t make assumptions. If you’re missing some context or the “why” behind a decision, just ask.
Maybe, just maybe, what you’re asking that Manager to do isn’t in the best interest of their team and you can’t see it.
Don’t conflate a manager’s perceived inability to ask their team to do hard things with a manager’s need to balance those asks in the context of a dozen other hard asks by the rest of the org.— Cameron Moll (@cameronmoll) March 10, 2022
