Are you and your organization being held back?
Are your co-workers saying, “Don’t rock the boat. Don’t bring your new ideas here they are not welcome!”
To often it is the co-workers that don’t want to change, learn or thinking forward! And it is often contagious! And it is allowed to continue.
A Business Health Warning!
Who do these “unchange agents represent”? Are they representing the organization or themselves? Statistics show that they are a pretty big minority but their influence kills organizations and they “outperform” those who are truly engaged.
The negative few overcome and outperform the positive majority!
If you don’t do anything about it your organization is not going to last very long! The “good” will leave and the “bad” will prevail.
Unfortunately there are too many folks who are stuck in “yesterday” and too many organizations that are not prepared to move the “jelly”. Too much “wobble” and not enough moving off the plate (bus).
Creativity to do something different, to move the organization forward, takes courage. It takes very little to say it has always been like that here and (this new stuff) will not work!
I often see the entitlement that people feel they have of having worked somewhere for a long time. I too often see lack of leadership or management.
The organization allows them the privilege to put down those folks with new ideas AND get away with it.
That’s when privilege becomes an entitlement and the entitlement starts to kill the very hand that feeds them.
Remaining spectacular with ideas brings value to you and the organization.
There are too many Naysayers in every organization who want to tell you what you cannot do.
It is time for every organization to look at those who they employ and who actively work against what the company needs to do to be competitive. Move them out! You will save millions of dollars and save your company.

Some of the questions asked were:
Are you genuine? Are you a good listener? Are you people focused?
Do you think about the vision of the organization? Did you make an impact on someone’s life today? Did you say thank you or good job to someone today? Do you care?
It’s not like we don’t know all this stuff, the question is do we use it daily?
A leader’s job is to change the attitude of the people you work.
Did you know that 70% of people who does business with your company is because they like doing business with YOU!
That is huge! Customers become emotionally connected, 20% for what you know, and 80% because of your personality.
One important thing we need to remember: someone hired us for the job! So, you ask, what does that mean? You interviewed, you were chosen from several applicants, and someone thought YOU were the best for the job.
They trust you, they have faith in you, and so, if you’re working average, it’s not good enough.
I came to work this morning, thinking, who will I have an impact on today, how will I make this organization grow, and when I drive home tonight, I will ask myself what am I going to do better tomorrow?
