Words make a difference
HOLLY ZIMMER, CHICAGO. FOUNDER OF SEARCH FIRM. CLEAR CIRCLE.
I always thought I was a great communicator.
I’ve been running my recruiting company for 12 years, have great clients and staff. I didn’t realize I was basically “barking out” orders and expecting staff to understand my expectations and direction.
WITH SQUIRCLE COLLABORATION
Someone on my staff actually suggested I take this - and I see why! Instead of barking, I slow down, am more mindful of what I’m asking to be done and collaborate with staff on how we might accomplish things. They’ve commented that they feel freer to ask questions, even occasionally questioning my direction. We have a stronger team, with higher quality results and more respect for each other. Words make a difference!
