Consistent feedback and coaching with clearly stated intentions for success

The ability to deal with ambiguity is an organizational competency that too often leads to derailment. Leaders that demonstrate success leading diverse talent ensure role clarity by clearly communicating expectations and identifying key stakeholders. They initiate honest conversations about what success looks like, reinforce strengths, identify blind spots, and help develop strategies for achievement.  This is by no means hand-holding.  These leaders serve as a directional compass, providing guidance for negotiating unfamiliar territory and navigating landmines.
