Smile! Your Team is Watching You


Be On Point

Once you have chosen to be the leader of your organization, you are always onstage. It’s quite common for the entrepreneur to wonder if anyone will ever notice you or what you’re doing. Since we’re of the mindset that nobody’s paying attention anyway, we assume it’s ok to act as if no one is ever really watching. It’s a trap, don’t fall for it! You are always on stage and your every action, interaction and reaction is being scrutinized and analyzed by every constituent of the company.

“Your behaviors set the tone” 

Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe

Employees are watching your capabilities, temperament and daily behavior:

  • Do you look tired?
  • Do you yell?
  • Do you slam the phone?
  • Do you insult employees?
  • Do you say hello when you walk past someone?
  • Do you introduce yourself to new employees?
  • Are you late to meetings?
  • Do you favor certain employees over others?
  • Do you welcome feedback and criticism?
  • Do you talk negatively about team members, customer or employees?
  • Do you insult former employees?
  • Do you say one thing in public and another in private?
  • Are you trustworthy?
  • Do you dress well?
  • What time do you get to work?
  • What time do you leave?
  • Do you act as if you know it all or are constantly learning?

When you are busy running the business, you typically don’t spend much time thinking about how you appear to people. You are focused on the tasks at hand. Be mindful of your behaviors, words, tone and overall vibe. Your employees are always watching you. Do you behave the way you want your team to behave? Remember, you set the tone, so make it the right one.
