Manufacture your Day by BUILDING BETTER RELATIONSHIPS
I am always looking for new ways to help people to get a better understanding about the complexity of relationships.
There are two sides to every story. Always.
I do my best to observe myself closely – when do I get frustrated, when do I get stressed, when do I get upset with myself and the world. The most difficult thing for us human beings is to avoid judgment. Our social environment teaches us judgment from an early age.
If you can learn to provide constructive feedback without judgment about the person, you will be at the top of your game.
Shakespeare said, “There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.”
People sometimes think that I have it all figured out but I am learning every day as much as you do. Over the years I have trained myself to become more and more aware of my reactions to others, and there is still room for improvement. 🙂
I encourage you to observe yourself:
- How do you react when a car is cutting you off on the highway?
- How do you respond when one of your team members made a serious mistake?
- How do you react when you are stuck in traffic?
- How do you respond when your children don’t demonstrate the expected behaviour?
All of this is leadership.
Did you know that we judge others by their actions but we evaluate ourselves by our intentions?
If you become more aware of your own actions, it will be easier for you to become more patient with others. As always, I am your biggest fan.
I wish you an awesome weekend with lots of rest and recovery.
