“Positivity is a force multiplier”
It’s Values vs Tactics, and Values Always Win
I’ve embraced a lot of things in my life, from leadership to discipline to simplicity…all just feel like tactics compared to how impactful the power of optimism and positivity has been the last few months.
Tactic = A tip. An action. A life hack
Values = A religion. A ritual. An overall philosophy on everything.
The Crazy Thing About All This Is…
I used to PUSH super hard to get compliance, or to get the team to care about this, or that, or more often try to build more culture.
Results varied from so-so, to good, but I never felt like I accomplished what I set out to do, ya know.
A teammate says thanks to me and makes a comment about what I invest in the team, Another says that last time he said that at a meeting he got called a suck up.
I had created the opportunity for that to happen to him, because I had been in charge of what had become a negative culture. It happened because I filled it with negative attitudes. People thought there was an agenda to everything, or was skeptical of what we did.
NOT ANY MORE!
Now, we’ve begun to build the true team and it’s built on the foundation of the right things…
The foundation of PEOPLE 🙂
