Do you feel like a warrior when you go to work?
Do you feel like you MUST be a warrior?
Warriors are tough. Is that a necessity for getting people to work together and produce desired results?
My conversation with Jordan Goldrich, author of Workplace Warrior, had some surprises. The subtitle of his book is "People Skills for the No B.S. Executive." He immediately brought up the word, abrasive, to describe many leaders. Not a surprise! Sometimes people think they have to be tough, competitive, and yes, abrasive in order to be seen as a leader. Often, that backfires!
If you're going to be successful at work, you have to create a workplace that people are not afraid to go to. So, how does a leader create the desired balance?
Two big pieces of advice from Jordan:
"You have to show respect and compassion to others. Talk to them like they are human beings...because they are."
"Acknowledge and apologize for your past behavior."
That's where his seven steps to an apology come in.
Great insights for leaders who want to be better, leaders who need people skills!
Excellent information for everyone who goes to a workplace every day.
