Want to Spread Contagious Enthusiasm with Your Team?

Want to Spread Contagious Enthusiasm with Your Team?

Well here are a few answers and then a question!

First some “ways” to consider:

  • Hold “grapevine” meetings (informal meetings with an open agenda giving all employees a chance to set rumors straight) at least once a month to enhance communication and get worries and concerns out in the open.
  • Start every meeting with 3 minutes of “Good News.” Ask people in the room to share any good thing that has happened to them, to their family, in their community and especially in your organization.
  • Choose one day a week as your “A”(Appreciation) Day. Do not leave the office without writing a thank you note, leaving a voice mail message, or sending an email to thank someone for doing good work.

Now the question…

In every single moment, we have the choice to be happy or not

In every single moment, we have the choice to be happy or not. No matter what is going on, we can choose to focus on what is right, what is good and whole in ourselves and our lives, and what options we have in any given situation. In other words, we can choose to be happy no matter what.

The Key to Release

The key to release, rest, and inner freedom is not the elimination of all external difficulties. It is letting go of our pattern of reactions to those difficulties.
