We’re in the dog days of summer here in Colorado. No matter where you live, your enthusiasm for your work goes through ebbs and flows, more engaged at times than at other times.
When we’re at a low ebb, we miss things. We’re not paying close attention so we make more errors, miss more details, complete a task at 80% of what’s required rather than sticking to it through to 100%.
Leaders experience the same ebbs and flows. The challenge is that when leader’s aren’t fully present, results aren’t as strong as they need to be – and the quality of their work culture isn’t as healthy as it needs to be.
If leaders have defined what a good citizen looks like in your organization – keeping commitments or treating others kindly or ensuring the safety of yourself and colleagues – yet those valued behaviors are not modeled by leaders, coached by leaders, or monitored by leaders, your work culture won’t be consistently purposeful, positive, or productive.
In today’s three-minute episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I explain exactly how to keep the quality of your culture top of mind and healthy, every day.
My Culture Leadership Charge series features short (two-to-three-minute) videos that describe proven culture leadership and servant leadership practices that boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams, departments, regions, and even your entire company.
Each episode’s “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization – not just leaders – to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated respectfully at all times.View @scedmonds #Culture #Leadership Charge video series on @YouTube http://drtc.me/ytube & @Vimeo http://drtc.me/vimeo Click To Tweet
