Thank you Don!

 

This quote reminds me of Good to Great saying about Great Leaders.

 

When there is recognition:  Great Leaders look out the window at their team to give the credit away

 

When there is a mistake:  Great Leaders look in the mirror at themselves

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, July 22, 2013 6:33 AM

From the show:

 

The following actions or behaviors are NOT intended to blame others.  My intent is to accomplish two goals:

 

~illustrate how our actions can unintentionally cause others to feel excluded

 

~list these actions in hopes that those who may be behaving in these ways, can reflect upon and evaluate the quality of their leadership based on the likelihood that their actions may cause others to feel excluded

 

Exclusion actions or behaviors -

 

* Interrupting  (alone in a crowded room)

 

* Leaving others out 

 

* Ridicule in private or public 

 

* Abrasive and bullying behavior  

 

* Making you jump because I can  (disguised as "testing your limits)

 

           ------------------------------------------------------------

 

Have you felt excluded because of the actions above?  Other actions?
