Behavior Over Words

Leadership Freak has a great post this morning about how organizations and people reflect their leaders and how leaders can influence those around them with just their behavior. It is not how you see yourself, it is how others see you. If you believe that you care about your people and those around you, show it. A great segment that is fitting for coaches talks about focusing on the present.

“Pressing into the future makes leaders seem ungrateful about the present.

You see yourself as grateful but you don’t recognize achievement without reminding everyone they aren’t there yet.

The team reached goals this week but missed them last. What do you say when they celebrate? “That doesn’t fix last week!” You don’t want people letting down next week so you keep pushing. You’re an ungrateful jerk, even if you don’t feel that way.”
