My Leaders Are Bad at Communicating. What Should I Do? – Q&A With Pastor Mac Hammond

I recently started helping out at a small start-up organization, and I’ve discovered that the main leaders are very bad at communicating their expectations with their team members. Should I let them know how frustrated I am or should I ignore it?
