From Expectations to Agreements: How Open Conversations Transform Career Development
Few things sabotage a healthy employer-employee relationship as effectively as unmet expectations. There’s an inherent reluctance to define and express expectations: employers don’t want to overpromise, employees don’t want to seem ungrateful, and both sides may still be exploring their goals for the future.
