Leadership Tip of the Week

Orient around making a difference!

Take on the commitment to make a difference in everything you do and every way you behave.

Commit that every interaction you have with another person will leave them better off. This means: more enabled, encouraged, energized and/or empowered.

Keep your self-awareness high. Stay mentally awake and intentional toward this end. Avoid at all cost the trap of arguing, being Self-righteous, having excuses and/or coming across as condescending, arrogant or offensive.

It is not enough to mean well. What you say and how you say it both affect your ability to make a difference.

Any and every circumstance is an opportunity to make a difference. Even if you screw up you can always use that circumstance as an opportunity to make a difference – by taking ownership, fessing up, apologizing and promising to do better next time.

As someone wise once told me: “Be interested, not interesting.”

Just like the smartphone revolutionized the way we live and do business, it is inevitable that COVID will transform the way corporations work and do their business.

COVID very abruptly required companies to shift the way they manage their employees and customers, and the way they conduct their business.
