Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 13, 2014 8:36 PM

Complaining is problematic, but is it really what others think about the complainer that is important. Actually, it might be that the complainer ends up focusing on the negative and ends up in a morass of non-productivity. I used to just go back to my classroom and do what I felt was best. It did not make any difference whether the School manager agreed or not. Once I said my piece, I had better things to do.

John Michel's curator insight, July 14, 2014 7:42 AM

Next time you feel the urge to reflexively complain, think through these common perceptions of workplace whiners (by non-whiners). They may just be the best deterrent when you have the need to gripe:

Debra Walker's curator insight, November 25, 2014 8:22 PM

Complaints should always be accompanied by suggestions for addressing them.  I never advocate suppressing ideas or different perspectives but having a perspective to share comes with a responsibility and a commitment to participate in making things stronger and more effective.

4 Ways Leaders Can Create a Candid Culture

4 Ways Leaders Can Create a Candid Culture | Maximizing Human Potential | Scoop.it
When leaders want to create an open culture where people are willing to speak up and challenge one another, they often start by listening. This is a good instinct. But listening with your ears will only take you so far. You also need to demonstrate with words that you truly want people to raise risky issues.
Mike Klintworth's insight:
When people don’t feel safe speaking up, leaders can show that it is safe by saying the hard things themselves.

Listening matters. But sometimes you’ve got to open your mouth too and make positive statements to generate the safety people need.

It takes maturity and humility and wisdom to grasp that oftentimes the best thing you can do with that spotlight is to put it on those around you, so that they blossom in ways they didn’t realize were possible … and so that your organization can benefit fully from their fully developed talents.

Wow, I absolutely love this article!

 

What a powerful message to remind us that leadership is not about us, it is about helping our teams shine. 

 

So today if the positive spotlight is turned on you, turn it back to the team and let them shine!
