Q. Sometimes I feel as though no one does anything I ask until I nag them. I’m starting to feel like my mother must have. What can I do?
A. Maybe they don’t understand why you want them to do the task you are assigning to them so they are focused on completing the tasks they think are more important.
If you explain the purpose behind each of the tasks you assign you will see that people are much less resistant to doing them.
Have a look at my article on The Leadership Power of Purpose for more details of how this works plus some examples.
