I hope you had a restful weekend.
I thought I would share a great business tip to help promote your colleagues as problem solvers. There is a great quote from one of my favorite author and Success Coach, Saji Ijiyemi.
“You are either supporting the vision or supporting division”
We are all familiar with water cooler discussions. Informal discussions with colleagues can play a vital part in helping your business succeed but negative discussions can act as a barrier to success.
This week’s tip is one for you to share with your peers, send out as an email, share with someone the next time you hear a negative comment, print the attached sheet, stick it up in the staff room. It says the following:
Be a Problem Solver, Not a Complainer
If you see an issue, embrace the challenge, and think about what the solution might be before you discuss it with your colleagues. That way you will build your reputation as a problem solver rather than a problem-bringer and your colleagues will respect you as a creative thinker and leader.
Try to incorporate this into your week and let me know the responses you get.
I wish you a great week
