    In Search of Positive

    In Search of Positive

    Most people thrive in environments where there are more positive experiences than negative experiences, and it can be difficult to create that type of environment at work. Most people notice and comment on what went wrong in preference to noticing and commenting on what went right. As leaders, we want engaged, committed, positive teams, and that often calls for creating an environment where we notice what went right. In this episode, I’m proposing a simple way to keep this concept top of mind.

    Start with "Yes"

    Start with "Yes"

    While learning to say “No” is a useful and powerful leadership skill, it can be the end of a conversation. And, while it is sometimes necessary to end a discussion so that you can move on, it is more often helpful to keep the conversation going. To do that, good leaders learn how to say “No” by first saying “Yes”. That is the approach I’m exploring in this week’s episode.

There is a real difference in how a leader communicates (or a good vs less-than-good leader). Super helpful guidance Guy gives that you can bring right into your daily communications (written or spoken). As a leader, writer and public speaker, this is super helpful!
