Don’t Rely on Catchy Slogans to Inspire Your People

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.
