Many conversations at work (and at home) involve some degree of tension because we’re often solving problems or resolving conflict together.
Sometimes we leave these conversations and one party has said all they need, but the other has not.
When this situation occurs, tension still exists. The unspoken stuff can eat at you and turn into bitterness, resentment, anger or distrust.
Leaders aren’t afraid to have the second conversation.
They embrace it.
And they are just as willing to have the second conversation whether they bring it up or it is brought back to them.
