Welcome to the short powerful What You Say Is What You Get® Positive Leadership Power Blog
for Feb. 2018, from Dr. Linne Bourget, M.A, M.B.A, Ph.D. , Appreciative Leadership Trailblazer!
How High Is Your Appreciative Quotient®, or AQ, as a Leader?
Now that we are launched into our 2018 goals, and since it is Valentine's week, it is a great time to checkon your Appreciative Leadership Power skills!
*How often do you appreciate those who work with you?
*If I interviewed them, how would they answer this question?
As I often say, giving Appreciation helps you as the giver as much as it does the receiver, for it keepsyou focused on the positive in your business and associates.
Always be sincere and specific so you are a credible feedback giver!
Research shows that people remember the negative more than the positive, so repeating the positive helps anchor it!
But research also shows that positive companies are more profitable, so giving appreciation is a good investment!
In my recent showcase dance with a national champion, I learned that great leaders also need to learn how to leadnew things and need appreciation even though they are highly skilled top-notch professionals. I thought I was the one who needed to learn as I am experienced but still an amateur, but he needed to stop and figure out how to lead a sequence we had never done before, so it was an "aha" moment, as I thought he already had it down.
Leaders need appreciation too! I appreciated him often!
President's Day is coming up...send appreciative thoughts to the President too...toughest job on the planet, especially now!
"Whatever you appreciate, appreciates." Dr. Jean Houston
I appreciate all your positive leadership!
Peace and prosperity, and Happy Valentine's Day
