Good Morning. This is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to make your expectations and needs explicit in other words. Don't just drop hints. We've all found ourselves disappointed because someone didn't live up to our expectations only to realize later that the other person had not actually understood or expectations or realized that we needed help. Whether it's assuming that your team member will let you know in advance if he's not gonNA meet an important deadline or that. Your partner will send flowers on your anniversary. We're taking a risk if strongly-held expectations for someone's behavior but don't let the person know about them. Other people simply cannot read our minds and we waste all kinds of time behaving as though they can and then recovering from the disappointment or dropped balls when it turns out. They can't the only solution to this is to stop dropping hints. When you want something everyone is better off. If you just say it well easier said than done. Of course. Sometimes people feel awkward asking for help or stating their hopes expectations directly. Does it sound pushy? Is it insulting to suggest? Someone wouldn't know that you like meetings to start on time or that you expect. The person who finishes the paper Towel Roll will replace it but if we beat around the Bush drop hints other people. May Misunderstand what we mean and the results may not be what we intend so here are some ways to raise issues directly think clear collaborative congenial that means using direct language. Assuming that you and the other person are mutually focused on good outcomes and keep the tone positive and friendly. For instance on deadlines you could say and counting on being able to review your report. Monday afternoon. That's the time I've carved out to work on this because I'm attending a conference later in the week if you foresee a problem getting their report to me by lunchtime on Monday. Please let me know in advance or for household expectations. I would really appreciate it if you change the sheets and took out the trash the last day your house sitting because we'll be getting home late. Would that be doable? Or when you're asking for affection and support from family and friends next Tuesday is my birthday. I'd love to celebrate it with you. I was thinking small group of us would have lunch at the Sushi place near my office. But I'm open to other suggestions. The general approach should be to share the hope expectation or need. And then invite the other person to give a thumbs up or way in that way. You're not assuming anything instead. You're sharing your expectations in a way. That gives the other person the chance to confirm that. These expectations are shared or to suggest a different plan. That's not pushy instead. This approach greatly increases. The chances that your needs are met. It's hard to see the downside in that so today. If you find yourself how that someone will do something why not stop and ask the person directly save the mind reading carnivals and everyone will be better off in the meantime this is Laura.
