One Thing We Can All Agree On
Wednesday, December 9, 2020 - Joe Kiedinger
There’s one thing we can all agree upon—regardless of religion, age, race or political affiliation. It’s protecting our human dignity. Everyone deserves dignity.
Dignity: the state or quality of being worthy of honor or respect.
That’s always been our position here at Prophit Co. Whether we’re developing a client’s strategy, coaching a leader to be the best version of themselves or reminding clients and leaders of their purpose—dignity is at the center of all we do.
So, how do we go about infusing more dignity into the workplace?
Instead of expecting someone to act like you or communicate like you, seek to learn what motivates them. We all have different talents, preferences and communication styles. That’s why we can’t be held accountable to the same set of rules. We need to hold people accountable to who they really are, not who we wish them to be.
Once you understand that base premise, you can have more powerful, impactful conversations that help your business to run more smoothly.
ACTION PLAN: When frustration arises, stop asking yourself why they just don’t get it and start looking for ways you can better understand their perspective.
