If your door is always open, you should go out in the world and see what’s going on.
Way to often the open door is a lazy excuse. Sure, come to me with your questions, doubts, concerns, just don’t expect me to ask first. Because, well, you do not care.
We keep reading of how change is difficult, of how important it is to communicate, of how keeping people involved is critical to its success.
Is then my door is always open the best we can resort to?
If you care, actively ask, seek input, practice empathy, pretend candour.
If you have it all figured out instead, keep leaving your door open. No one will bother your certainty.
