Creating a ‘culture of ownership’ can sometimes seem like a full time job in itself. The signs of growth; initiative, accountability, team spirit and external focus should be regularly monitored. The more you understand the signs, the better you’ll be at creating the environment where everyone on your team ‘gets it’. But the benefits to you, your team, your customer and your company are tremendous!
As you make your way around the workplace this week, as you talk with peers, bosses and team members, take the pulse of your culture. How are you doing as a leader? Do you need to teach more? Do you need to reward differently? Do you need to unconditionally support more? Do you need to share more information? Are you as trustworthy as you can be? Think TRUST!
