TRIPLE III TIME: Employing EMPOWERMENT
As I thought about penning the last TRIPLE III TIME message for 2019, I considered offering… “A Year in Review”, “The Best of” and/or a cool remembrance story from holidays past. However, no matter which option I considered, my instinct of making sure this message had some useful “staying-power”, pushed Employing EMPOWERMENT to win out as the most important topic!
So as a starting point, think hard about how you are currently Employing EMPOWERMENT to help YOU… personally. Do you offer examples of being a cautious risktaker… or do you over-question attempts at trying something new/different? Do you continually think about “Always A Better Way!” opportunities or take pleasure in the status quo because constant change is NOT exactly something you look forward to?
Second, how do you consider Employing EMPOWERMENT as a professional… in your world-of-work? Do you surround yourself with those who look forward to WHAT ELSE and WHAT NEXT? Are you someone who drafts new ideas or approaches to problems and feels confident in sharing them with anyone? If you are a leader in your workplace… do you support those who offer alternative concepts and encourage others to “step-up” and share in leading your organizations drive for continuous improvement everyday… EVERYDAY?
Bottomline: I believe there is nothing more complimentary than witnessing a friend, colleague, or student Employing EMPOWERMENT… due to your influence. Don’t ever accept the position that “It’s Not My Job” to initiate and support Employing EMPOWERMENT to any situation. WHY… because going from Good-to-GREAT personally and professionally requires building a creative Employing EMPOWERMENT “We Are All In This Together Culture.” (So now are you ready for 2020??)
