What is the single greatest impact on my performance?
A fairly simple question, and yet the answer tells the story about what needs to change to get things done.
The answer: ME
My attitude. My resilience through change. My courage to be honest with myself and others when the work does not align with my heart. My willingness to ask for help.
In an era where our leaders, our companies, our world change more often than they ever have in history – who owns what I get done today becomes critically important.
Change gives us a reason the right things might not be happening, our first job is to not allow it to become an excuse.
When we own it – our situation looks different.
When we own it and readily ask for help/wisdom/guidance – teams have a chance to develop.
When we own it, ask for help, and our teammates come to our aid – teams have a chance to become healthy teams.
When we say thank you and bring in pizza/donuts/apples to celebrate teamwork – healthy teams can evolve into friendships.
And it all starts with ME.
Go own it – – or not. It is your choice.
