1. Share your numbers, hopes and fears with more stakeholders. This means they will better understand your position and attitudes, leading to more empathetic and productive relationships. Make them feel part of your journey.
2. Celebrate successes but also acknowledge failures. Recognising victories is important to boost morale and reward people for their achievements. Analysing failures is vital to preventing their reoccurrence. Covering the cracks just means they will grow without proper attention.
3. Meet with key stakeholders to understand better their point of view; they will appreciate this. Understanding others’ positions will help your professional relationships thrive. The greater the transparency between you, the more rewarding your relationship can become.
Are you transparent enough to let your stakeholders understand you?
