The 3 R's

One of our most important jobs as leaders is to guide, assist, and inspire our people to do their very best work … to “work right.” For that to happen, we must model – and help our team members master – “THE 3 R’s”

  1. Building RESPECT,
  2. Meeting RESPONSIBILITIES,
  3. Achieving RESULTS.

Here are a few specific things within each category for you to demonstrate, yourself – and establish as expectations for everyone in your group:

1. RESPECT

  • Concentrate on Courtesy – Be considerate of others.
  • Make “The Mission” Matter – Respect the organization’s purpose and everyone’s part in it.
  • Share the Spotlight – Acknowledge others’ contributions.

2. RESPONSIBILITY

  • Shoulder Your Share – Do your part as a team player.
  • Manage Your Mistakes – Own, admit to, fix and learn from your errors.
  • Share Your Skills – Pass along what you know and do well to help others succeed.

3. RESULTS

  • Go with Great Goals – Plan your work, work your plan, and aim high.
  • Focus on Fixes – Offer solutions instead of lamenting over problems.
  • Savor Successes – Be a cheerleader for positive contributions.

Live Inspired,

 Michelle Sedas
Excerpted from An Enemy Called Average:
The Keys to Unlocking Your Dreams
Our Words Are Seeds Planted
in Other People’s Lives
What we say is important. Our vocabulary should be filled with words of hope and dreams. Be known as someone who speaks positively.
Recently I saw a sign under a mounted large-mouth bass. It read, “If I had kept my mouth shut I wouldn’t be here.” How true! Don’t jump into trouble mouth first.
Let me pose this question for you: Starting today what would happen if you changed what you said about your biggest problem, your biggest opportunity?
I don’t know if you’ve had this conversation or not, but last month I turned to my wife Linda while we were sitting together in our family room and said, “Just so you know, I never want to live in a vegetative state dependent on some machine. If that ever happens, just pull the plug.”
She immediately got up, walked over and unplugged the TV.
“Our words create our worlds,” says Dean Sikes. Your words have the power to start fires or quench passion.
Don’t be like the man who joined a monastery in which the monks were allowed to speak only two words every seven years. After the first seven years had passed, the new initiate met with the abbot, who asked him, “Well, what are your two words?”
“Food’s bad,” replied the man, who then went back to his silence.
Seven years later the clergyman asked, “What are your two words now?”
“Bed’s hard,” the man responded.
Seven years later — twenty-one years after his initial entry into the monastery — the man met with the abbot for the third and final time. “And what are your two words this time?” the abbot asked.
“I quit.”
“Well, I’m not surprised,” the cleric answered disgustedly. “All you’ve done since you got here is complain!”
Don’t be like that man; don’t be known as a person whose only words are negative. If you’re a member of the “negative grapevine,” resign.
Contrary to what you may have heard, talk is not cheap. Talk is powerful!

Powerful Leadership Lesson from Chris Novak

Here’s a powerful “Leadership Lesson” from Chris Novak, author of an exciting new book titled Inspired to Succeed.
“Absence is not a reward for excellence. As a leadership coach, I cannot count the times that I have counseled professionals to spend time with their best team members. Too often, leaders develop the mistaken notion that their strongest players are the ones they don’t need to spend time with; they don’t need to attend their functions or workplace.
Nothing could be farther from the leadership truth. When leaders spend time with their high-performing or high-potential team members, it signals their support and motivates their continued growth.
Time is one of the most precious commodities we can offer, so when we spend time with another person we acknowledge their value and reward their effort. We do not need an agenda or an action plan or a punch-list for time spent with our top performers; our presence is simply enough.
They will take that motivation and run with it.”

Lead well … LEAD RIGHT,
