Why always a “YES” is big NO NO

Why always a “YES ” is big NO NO –  

7-yes-always

To become a good Leader, I always choose to read Leadership articles and books. Few days ago I read an article which said – people who keep silent, those who always say “YES BOSS” have high chances to grow in an organization than people who talk their mind or try to put across their point of view.

I started to think is that what management looks for people who accept whatever is said.

Does this work for me also?

The answer was “NO”.

How can I take a good decision if, there will not be a discussion or if I am not getting any inputs from my team members.

Imagine a scenario – where I call upon my team members to discuss a new procedure change in the process. I explain the new procedure to them and on asking for inputs, everybody says “YES” it is a good idea.  But after few days we start facing the problem, team says they expected to face this when the procedure was discussed.

Then why nobody spoke up to discuss the problem? After discussing individually with each of the team members it came up that they did not want to speak up in a meeting to say the procedure will not fit in as none of them will want to make a negative impression.

Does putting your thought across in a meeting really a negative impression?

You have to study your audience to find out the good time for you. For the pages having audience in one particular time zone will be much easy, however for the pages catering the audiences in multiple time zone will be little difficult.

Find out who your audience are

Focus on the age group and the activities of your audience.

Are they college going?

Are they working population?

All these questions will help you find who your audiences are and what time they will be likely to be on Facebook to see your post.
