Leaders and managers should over-communicate and share whatever they know so that their team members don't feel out of the loop or like victims
East Elmhurst, NY (Vocus) August 12, 2009
Pat Thomas, Executive Coach for The McNeill Group, was recently tapped by Black Enterprise magazine to weigh in on the topic: how to maximize your staff's time and potential despite economic worries. Thomas has vast experience working with teams in order to capitalize on their individual and group creativity and production, particularly important in today's uncertain economy.
"Leaders and managers should over-communicate and share whatever they know so that their team members don't feel out of the loop or like victims," Thomas said, adding; "More rumors than normal may develop with so much uncertainty in the workplace, so it's important to intercept them so that people don't get alarmed unnecessarily."
In her work with Fortune 1000-sized organizations, Thomas has been instrumental in turning dysfunctional teams into teams that produce Quantum Leap Results. In addition to one-on-one coaching, Thomas uses proprietary programs developed by The McNeill Group as a part of her winning strategy.
