In life we all want to be the best at whatever it is that we aim at….but our habits can either break us or make us. Robert Ringer says “Remember, life is nothing more than the sum total of many successful years; a successful year is nothing more than the sum total of many successful months; a successful month is nothing more than the sum total of many successful weeks; a successful week is nothing more than the sum total of many successful days.”
Let’s check our habits to make sure we don’t destroy not only ourselves but the teams we work with.
There will be times when playing the role of manager is so very important…..don’t get me wrong, managerial duties are extremely important. Sometimes as he leader one has to sit back , watch and listen. I mean who can hear anything anybody is saying if we are all shouting across the room, talking at the same time, murmuring under our breathes?
At that moment, just sit down and still, listen to what is being argued or complained about. See how best you can get a hang on solving the problem, cause truth be told, the only reason there is a problem is because…duh nobody is listening.
Say to your team, “guys stop and let’s start over, one by one, what are your thoughts?”
Good to be creative, good to have ideas but you need much more for you to deliver a good business pitch.
