Manage Perceptions

Perception is reality in that people generally act upon their perceptions and this action is real. Leaders must be sensitive to their own judgments and comments about others. Be aware of the consequences of your words as much as your actions.
Different cultures may account for some differences in perception. Something that is said in one culture could mean very different in another. This becomes very important when teams are multicultural or supervisors are unfamiliar with cultural perspectives on work, management, personal freedom and responsibility, ethics, and the like.
Managing perception is one of the key skills that one has to learn to move forward in our world of work.
