The Ethical Action Test

The Ethical Action Test

How do we know what’s ethical or what’s the right thing to do? Here are some solid leadership guidelines for you and your team members.

  1. Is it legal?
  2. Does it comply with our rules and guidelines?
  3. Is it in sync with our organizational values?
  4. Will I be comfortable and guilt-free if I do it?
  5. Does it match our stated commitments and guarantees?
  6. Would I do it to my family or friends?
  7. Would I be perfectly okay with someone doing it to me?
  8. Would the most ethical person I know do it?

How and When to Give Positive Feedback and Reinforce Positive Performance

How and When to Give Positive Feedback and Reinforce Positive Performance

The most effective encouragement for positive performance is positive feedback – it’s also the best way to reinforce that desired behavior for the future. Here are some guidelines for doing just that:

  • Be sincere. Giving positive feedback can backfire if it’s not perceived as genuine. Most people are experts, or at least think they are, at reading the sincerity of their manager. Faking positive feedback is risky. Be sincere … or wait until you can be.
  • Be quick. The sooner you give feedback after the behavior you’re trying to reinforce, the better your results will be. If you only give positive feedback at performance review time or on other formal occasions, you miss a major leverage point for improving productivity.
  • Give feedback often. There’s a significant difference in the perceptions of managers and their followers as to how often positive feedback is given. Don’t be fooled into thinking you recognize positive behavior too often. Do it twice as often as you think you should, and you’ll have a good chance of meeting your employees’ needs.

Stress is a Choice

I learned that we can do anything, but we can’t do everything … at least not at the same time. So think of your priorities not in terms of what activities you do, but when you do them. Timing is everything.

What's the Difference Between Teams and "Dream Teams"?

What’s the Difference Between Teams and “Dream Teams”?

“Dream Teams” are a group of individuals who unite and work together to accomplish a common goal and produce outstanding results.

Leaders take the time to build Dream Teams to accomplish extraordinary things that no one person or traditional teams can normally accomplish. They build Dream Teams to make their business more profitable … to better serve the clients of their non-profit … to help the kids at school learn more so they can be better prepared for the future and be more able to contribute.

Dream Teams are powerful, the old expression “TEAM – Together Everyone Accomplishes More” is true. And, at their best, they become Dream Teams that make full use of the individual skills and talents of their members – creating a profoundly, unstoppable collaboration that truly makes the whole much greater than the sum of the parts.

It takes a little more work to create a Dream Team, but it is work that’s well worth it.
