Some top notes from the article:
Being direct is a necessity in the workplace. There simply isn’t time to beat around the bush or tread lightly in an effort to avoid conflict. At the end of the day, this isn’t personal, it’s business. To be clear, being blunt doesn’t mean being rude or oblivious to your colleague’s feelings. It simply means stating the issue in an effort to correct or solve the problem and move forward. Which is kinder to your team, and employees are not harbouring issues that could result in bigger, widespread conflict.
