Noticing even the SLIGHTEST shifts….
I'll be honest. As a leader, I'm not always so good at this when it comes to leading staff and others.
Sure, I do pretty well noticing the slight steps people take on their spiritual journeys – but this is not always natural to me when it comes to day to day people leading.
More often than not, I tend to miss out on recognizing and celebrating the slight shifts in the right direction in people's attitudes or behaviors. It's like all or nothing.
But what I'm realizing is that even the SLIGHTEST shifts in the right direction need to be recognized, pointed out, and celebrated.
I'm learning that as a leader, it's not just about helping others "get there" – it's also about being a part of their JOURNEY of getting there. And by acknowledging the slight positive shifts, people feel more empowered to keep making those slight shifts – until eventually…….they're there!
Anyone care to add to that?
