Believe in Yourself

Tue, 10/04/2016 - 12:08pm -- Beth Flynn

“You are a unique human being, and there is no one else like you in the world.  You have unique gifts, talents, and perspectives that you bring to your relationships with others.  You have experience and knowledge that position you to make the world a better place. 

Consider all of the roles you play in the work you do and the life you lead.  Think about the difference your efforts have made to your networks over the course of a lifetime.

Solid Ground

"As a leader, you will likely be required to compromise on some issues. You will have to take a stand or have a position about various subjects. You should have a clear understanding of those things on which you are unwilling to compromise. That is a natural part of leadership. And it is your job as a leader to build the best culture you can - one that is productive, collaborative, flexible, and fair, and delivers results that matter.

"Managers and leaders are central to employees' experience of work and their experience within the organization.  Leaders are always part of a broader organizational culture and the overall culture will outlast any individual leader's efforts.  Over time, leaders will shape the culture, but this takes years and affecting this type of change is more similar to steering a tanker - slow and deliberate.
