Want the people on your team to step up...

Updated: Mar 31, 2020


Want them to take more ownership in their job and their responsibilities?

Want them to increase their level of initiative, responsibility, and commitment?

Have you heard the phrase, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”? I used to use this as my tagline when I was a BNI member a few years ago. I changed it a little, “Be the change you wish to see in your business.”

If you want people on your team to function at a different level, you need to function at a different level. There’re a few reasons for this:

First, you are really the only thing you can actually control. You can’t control others. You can, however, influence others.

Second, people around you respond to how you behave. If you want to see a new behavior in them, you have to change what you do. Trust me, they will change when you start doing something different.
