Your Perspectives on Encouraging Always
By: Joanna Eng, Blog Editor
|If you haven’t had a chance to think about last month’s theme, Contentment vs. Commitment, you can still contribute your thoughts to that and previous topics. But we’re also moving on to a new month and a new topic….
It’s sometimes amazing how many negative thoughts can pile up in your head when a daunting task lies ahead. Do I have to do this? What if something goes wrong? What if I am not good enough?
As a leader, remember that feeling when communicating with the people you work with; rather than leaving them with feelings of shame, anxiety, and insecurity, try to instill them with pride, hopefulness, and confidence. In other words: encourage them.
Even if—especially if—you are in a meeting to discuss low performance or deliver a difficult message, lean towards encouragement. Encouragement will get your people ready for the next steps, for learning and improvement—rather than blocking their progress with negative thoughts.
How can you develop the habit of delivering more encouragement on a regular basis?
What are some methods for making people feel constantly encouraged in your organization?
How can you turn a potentially negative situation into one of encouragement?
