Hi, Managers and Supervisors

How’s it going?

One day, my husband and I were at Walmart and saw this quote on a T-shirt. I used to be a people person; then people ruined it! ~ unknown. 

I held up the T-shirt and told my husband; I am buying this. As a leadership and work-life balance coach, I encourage people not to feel this way. So why did I want to buy the T-Shirt? 

Well, I had many days that I felt this way in Leadership.

Have you ever felt this way? 

I know I did throughout my career, especially when knee-deep in the day-to-day grind of (Bull Crap). There were days I would go home and think, why am I doing this? Am I even making a difference; why are people so picky, hateful, judgmental, petty, discouraging, and disrespectful? Somedays, Myself included.

How does having a lousy attitude at work affect your reputation, employees, coworkers, customers, and the business’s bottom line?

Do you believe that other people around you at work can jade your perspective toward others, and you start to feel like the T-shirt quote?

What happened to kindness, empathy, praise, encouragement, and compassion in the workplace?

Managers and Supervisors, you can change the attitude in the workplace. One day at a time by your approach towards the workplace, yourself, and others. Once you apply kindness, empathy, praise, encouragement, and compassion to your employees and coworkers, others will notice and, as time goes on, will follow the pattern.

Here are some Self-Reflection Questions About Daily Interactions:

  • Why is everything about who can “one up” each other? How can this change in my leadership style?
  • Why is “knowledge power”? How can I share more?
  • What happened to being genuinely happy for a coworker and recognizing their accomplishments? How and when can I start recognizing others?
  • Why is being so “busy” acceptable and “ignoring” family okay? How can I improve spending time with my family and friends?
  • When will these interactions change within my Leadership?

What kind of leadership legacy do you want to leave behind?

It would be so amazing if this T-shirt is no longer valid in the workplace, and people feel safe at work and are inspired and encouraged to be their best with continual support. So Managers and Supervisors, let’s make it happen one day at a time!

The Power of Affirmations!

This month’s theme will be the practice of affirmations and applying them to daily life, whether for home, work, or both.

What is an affirmation?

Affirmations are positive words or sentences that may assist you in staying focused encouragingly. If you repeat the affirmation every day, you may notice an optimistic transformation in your attitude towards yourself and others throughout the day. Using affirmations may help your relationships at home and in the workplace and may even increase career opportunities.

I will be posting daily positive affirmations Monday through Friday this month on my social media platforms.
