Sol’s Wisdom for Leaders:
Did you ever hear the suggestion, “Look for the good in people?”
Something I was taught long ago about establishing a cobweb of personal relationships, was to look for the good in people.
This practice is especially good for leaders like you, who desire to mesh strong teams throughout their organizations because, as you may have already learned, you will always find in people what you are looking for.
As a new manager, it was suggested that I employ the practice of managing by exception.
That process called for looking for the things that were wrong, so the employee could fix them.
That practice was uncomfortable for me as I didn’t believe that it helped build the best employees possible by always looking for what’s wrong.
Soon, I developed the process of asking two questions of the team member,
-> What was your view of how the activity (sales call, training, prospecting) went?
-> What one thing could we have done better?
Those questions focused more on building good practices by the employees, resulting in the habit of always performing at their best.
Sol says… “If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you!” ~ Proverbs 11:27
Be sure to search for good in all you do, make it a great day and keep being awesome.
