...... too often, organisations have knowledgeable, well-educated, experienced and skillful people, but their attitude is negative.
...... the true value of leaders lie in their ability to inculcate a positive attitude in their staff and this can be the firm's key competitive edge in the marketplace.
"There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative". - W. Clement Stone.
Leaders can take specific strategies to get people develope a positive attitude towards work.
Jack Welch of General Electric advocated five simple principles in which organisations could control their 'destiny'. They were as follows ;
# Face reality as it is,not as it was or as you wish it were.
# Be candid with everyone.
# Don't manage, lead.
# Change before you have to.
# If you don't have a competitive advantage, don't compete.
...... How many of us have improved our skills and competencies to take into account the changing work environment? How many of us have changed our mindsets to take into account the different values and work ethics that new employees bring to the workplace? How many of us have learnt new skills that continue to make us relevant at the workplace?
Adhere to the following three simple principles ;
a. Indulge in less rhetoric and more action in terms of best practices.
b. Surround yourself with good managers / people who are able to tell you 'bad news'.
c. Accept and encourage contradiction at all times.
Organisations that are willing to face reality as it is, good or bad, and take action to change will always be in charge of their destiny.
