#1 – You must have clear expectation and communication.

You cannot have clarification without good communication. (1 Corinthians 13:1-3, NKJV)

#2 – Clear communication has to have the why, who, and when.

  • Why do you want them to do it.
  • Who do you want to do it.
  • When do you want it done by.

#3 – Clear communication can be repeated back by the one you communicated to.

  • This is a very important responsibility.
  • The one communicating often assumes the other person understands and does not ask them to repeat it back.
  • The one to whom it was communicated does not completely understand but does not repeat it back to the one who communicated and asks them if that’s what they meant.
  • If we do that last step, it would eliminate most assumptions and misunderstanding.
