Your performance management savvy will increase as you better your communication capabilities, so there’s no time like the present to assess your current skill level.
If most of your answers were A
It may be time to get some communication training stat. You need some basic education on the power of communication and the importance of strategic message delivery. Without developing these skills further, your effectiveness as a team leader will be limited.
If most of your answers were B
You’re on the verge of being a solid communicator, but are too hesitant in your delivery. Commit to your messages, figure out how to vary your delivery and the mediums in which you share them and you’ll find things “stick” much better, which underscores your true leadership skills.
If most of your answers were C
It’s a mayday situation. You are an over-sharer to the nth degree and there is no doubt that your team will start to tune you out in the near future … if they haven’t already. Tempering how and when you communicate is an easy fix and you’ll be back on track to be a great leader in no-time.
If most of your answers were D
Yippee! You’re a master communicator with the skills to deliver messages through a variety of methods. You should feel confident in your ability to share news and have it resonate, and you should feel confident that you’re likely one of the leading managers in your organization who is successful when it comes to key leadership skills, including performance management.
