When people talk about great leaders that have amazing teams performing consistently at a high level the question is often “How do they do it?”

The answer is really not a secret or complex. They start by working hard to build a strong foundation based on mutual trust and respect for one another. Without that, true success is just as probable as a 100 story building lasting very long if it’s built on a shabby, shallow foundation.

Most of us, at some point in our career, were subjected to some sort of fluffy, feel-good slogan designed to improve morale or enhance quality or productivity. The problem is often that few, if any, of the employees or “associates” take these slogans seriously.

This is especially true when spewed by executives they don’t trust or respect. Many in the target audience say things like, “Blah, blah, blah. Just another flavor of the month and more rah rah BS”.

My strong recommendation to leaders is to use such slogans sparingly and talk with and get the buy in of your people for the intiative by including them in the design of it. After all they are the ones that will have to implement it.
