Believe, Encourage, Share, Trust
Believe in them
Share with them
This is a John C. Maxwell acronym that I picked up somewhere along the way. I wrote this down a couple of years ago but I’m embarrassed to say that I don’t feel like I’ve gotten much better at it. I think I tend to underestimate how valuable it is to my team to articulate my belief in them, to cheer them on, to share information and to show that I trust them. Too often I assume they know.
I think “encourage them” is the one that I have to work hardest at. I think “believe in them” is the one that I do most naturally (although I don’t tell them enough).
How about you?
Which one of the four comes easily to you?
Which one is the most challenging?
What one thing can you do to believe, encourage, share or trust today?
