Guess what? It turns out we are not as transparent as we think we are. We know what we are thinking, we know what we mean, we know what we want … but just because we know what we’re on about, doesn't mean that others do.
Great leaders build engagement. Engagement in meetings requires contribution and involvement. Many leaders I work with complain of a lack of engagement from their team members during meetings, despite their best efforts. This is not always about their leadership or their teams’ engagement; often there are other factors at play.
