Manufacture Your Day by MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Manufacturing Supervisor Leadership Training Coaching

Are you a difference-maker?

So many people aspire to make a living but very few aspire to inspire and make a difference in other people’s lives.

A great attitude can be contagious, and greatly affect the performance of others.

Here are some pretty simple examples of how you can make a difference at work:

  • Smile
  • Say “hello, please and thank you”
  • Help someone else
  • Listen deeply and with curiosity
  • Be positive
  • Focus on the opportunity in a problem
  • Learn from your mistakes and help others to learn from theirs
  • Ask response questions such as Describe, Explain, Tell me about
  • Focus more on people than on numbers
  • Be honest
  • Shine a light on humanness
  • Hire for potential not efficiency
  • Appreciate and encourage

Deming used to say, “What is the multiplying factor of a happy employee? What is the multiplying factor of an unhappy employee? Nobody knows. It cannot be measured. That’s why it has no significance.”

Thankfully these days we know that happy employees are more productive employees. Please read this Forbes Article “Promoting Employee Happiness Benefits Everyone”.

Now, here is the thing. If you are someone who would like to be happier in your life, I can tell you what won’t create happiness.

  • Money
  • The house, the car, more stuff
  • Title
  • Promotion

Thoughts such as “I will be happy when….” are all too common. If people focus too much on big life events and not enough on day-to-day experiences, happiness is only short-lived.

Many of us have become aware that we shouldn’t take certain things for granted:

  • enjoying a good cup of coffee with a friend
  • learning something new
  • making time for a phone call with someone far away
  • going to a concert or sports event
  • being fully present with your children
  • giving a hug to someone we care about
  • having a nice family dinner
  • going for a run (or any other sport)
  • doing something that is good for you (self-care)
  • going for a nice long walk in nature
  • planning a special date night, etc.

Did you know that our brains become addicted to feeling good by making others feel good?

The only strategies for long-term happiness are 1) personal growth and 2) contribution.

Can you see why making a difference should be part of your life plan?
