In these short (less-than-three-minute) segments, I present proven culture leadership practices that can boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams.
The “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated with trust, respect, and dignity in every interaction.
You don’t have to be a formal leader to apply these practices – everyone is a culture leader (for better or worse)!
Today’s charge is titled “You’ll do more GOOD if you aim to SERVE more than you aim to PLEASE.”
It is difficult to please everyone – and that’s not the leader’s job. The leader must clarify the organization’s present day servant purpose, specify values and behaviors to ensure cooperation and team work, and hold everyone accountable for both values and results.Don't miss @scedmonds #Culture #Leadership #Charge video series now on @Vimeo http://drtc.me/vimeo Click To Tweet
