Keep me in the loop
As Karina patiently waits to find out if she is the successful candidate for a permanent teaching position, the stress levels around our house are building.
A plethora of discussions about the merits, the options, the other candidates, but most importantly … “when will you find out?”.
The interview was on a Friday and as the decision date passed by… nothing but ‘crickets’.
Karina eventually inquired after the status of the position…”a couple more days”.
The suspense is building.
It is a leadership reminder to communicate, kindly, openly, and often.
Keeping people in ‘the loop’ is the ultimate show of compassion and respect.
“I am sorry to keep you waiting, here’s where we are. Any further questions?”
Now that’s a peak ethos.
