Ask yourself as a leader, how many times a day do I speak nicely of my staff? How many times a day do I speak nicely of my partner? The domino effect can not only have a positive effect on others but an everlasting effect leading to employee engagement, happiness and ultimately a healthier work-life balance.
I always tell my kids, “when someone is talking ‘smack’ about others, they are talking ‘smack’ about you”. Now I can tell them, “implement stt rather than std- it’s just as catchy”- no pun intended.
