  • Your Small Imprecise Ask Is a Big Waste of Their Time

    **Link Summary:** Unclear requests from managers and leaders lead to inefficiencies and confusion within companies. Vague directives result in excessive time investments and misaligned efforts. To address this, leaders should provide precise instructions, specifying time limits, prioritization, and the purpose of the task. Examples include setting time constraints, clarifying priorities, and indicating whether prior information exists. Conversely, when receiving tasks, employees should seek clarification on time expectations and not hesitate to ask questions for a clearer understanding, avoiding wasted resources due to assumptions.
