Wednesday’s Wisdom… Acknowledge Others & Build

It’s said, “Leadership is taking action, where there is no action.” A reminding definition to alleviate procrastination, become innovative and promote what is right than remaining in error or motionless. A leader acknowledges his/her team, recognizing their accomplishments; helping a colleague reach their next stage of development.

Everyone desires success and it’s experienced through various levels of growth. The training you are experiencing today, whether enjoyable or difficult; understand this way, “that piece of coal (training) will be a diamond one day.” Within this growing process – the one who helps elevates the status of another, subsequently elevates his/her own status as well – especially when teams are successful. What about if this person is from another organization or coalition? “Yes!” Show admiration toward efforts during a successful campaign and even in tough times, your motivation will go a long way.

“Our universe was designed by Goodness, and the reward for good is good”

There are many leading organizations and/or an individual, who hold good people back and restrict what they think is only meant for them. Maybe it’s not done intentionally; but their drive tends to ignore or overstand the drive of another, who is mutually important for his/her sustainability. A lot of good people have become lost in stagnation and/or devastated by others, because they are not being acknowledge for their work. We should allow hard-workers to shine and empower them with opportunities for advancement. They not only earned their pay checks, but those emails of opportunity you receive daily – forward it to someone who may could take advantage, “Why Delete It!”

“Good deserves good, what you put in – is what you get out, what goes around comes back around – twice as better.” Sayings we all have heard before, but misunderstand or misuse a simple practice of simple sharing. In most cases, Man prefer business over brotherhood.

Basically let’s identify and recognize a good worker, a leading personality and/or an organizer who exemplifies the vision of the team. Build a team who appreciates your leadership. Spread the opportunities for advancement and reward good for doing good work. Simple rewards are smiles, a thank you or even a “shout out!” These tokens of appreciation are relationship developers, and in today’s changing world – relationships are needed. Think down the line…

“the volunteer at the registration table, may be the one interviewing you one day – hopefully your leadership was thoughtful….”
