How can I include my people in this decision / project?

Are my people clear about what’s expected of them?

Am I giving them enough feedback?

Do I believe in their capabilities and potential?

Am I being as open as I possibly can be with everyone?

Am I saying and doing the same thing?

What can I do to make sure every individual knows that they matter?

Are they getting the support they need as individuals?

If you don’t know the answers, ask your people.
