1. When talking to your team consider where they are at and their reference point. If they're not privy to your framework, your project, your priorities, your reference point or your managerial requirements they will need a context created for them.
2.Reiterate the basics – goals, key tasks, mutual expectations. Everyone involved in a team, or in a project, needs to have a strong understanding of the basics.
3.Always communicate in both directions- Take time to listen to concerns, feedback, ideas and challenges from people around.
4.How well are we being received? Note bad habits like interrupting others, ignoring someone else's demands and placing our work as a priority without notice, thinking of our next comment rather than listening to what someone else is saying, etc. These are all things that can be unlearnt with practice.
5. Use feedback to improve – be open to change
