I have been working at fusing a conversation approach with a lean approach to work for a large health care facility. As I was working on this I was also reading Rich DeVos’ new book, Ten Powerful Phrases for Positive People.
The book is a positive and powerful read and if you voice these phrases I believe you will get the most out of both others and yourself at work and home.
I encourage you to read the book but without any waste, here is the big 10:
- I’m wrong
- I’m sorry
- You can do it
- I believe in you
- I’m proud of you
- Thank you
- I need you
- I trust you
- I respect you
- I love you
You know these statement but do you use these statements? Do you voice these statements? Do you live these statements?
Imagine a workplace where all managers and leaders not only voiced these words but lived these words.
Now that would be a positive and powerful lean conversational approach to full employee engagement.
