I first want to congratulate you if you’re reading the follow up to this last week’s challenge of fixing one behavior a day in bullying at the workplace.
Whether it was your own or one of your team members, that is not an easy task. Mother Teresa’s famous quote, “We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”
The same principle applies in leadership. We may feel that what we are doing to prevent or encourage different thinking in the workplace is a drop of water on cement, and making no dent in people that don’t want to change… especially when those people are us. However, every intentional effort is an effort in the right direction. So, whatever you are doing, remember that it does matter. That every single effort to improve is one more drop in the ocean of doing what really matters.
Have a great weekend!
