Some managers have trouble expressing exactly what they want their team to do. They might give indirect instructions and leave it to bewildered workers to decipher them. Example: A supervisor who wants everyone to tidy up office clutter can say, “It’s important that we have our desks in better shape.” Or there’s the more crisp, direct version: “Please clean your desks.” As a rule, try to tie subject, verb and object together in a concise manner when giving an assignment. Then summarize what you want done and describe the desired outcome.
