I made this mistake as a new manager.

I was careless with my language.

Here’s what I did:

πŸ‘‰πŸΌ I used generic language. Examples:

❌ “Can you look into it?”
❌ “Nice job”
❌ “ASAP”

πŸ‘‰πŸΌ I should’ve used specific language. Examples:

βœ… “Can you review slides 7 and 8?
βœ… “Thank you for adding the timeline. This helps the exec. team”
βœ… “Can you please send me the report out by 10 AM CST today?”

Don’t make the mistake I did. Ask yourself:
β†’ Am I being specific?
β†’ Where can I be more specific?
β†’ How do I need to be more specific?

Specificity builds performance, being general builds confusion. Start getting specific today. Your teams will be glad you did.
