Micro-Goal # 3 to a GREAT Workplace: USE POSITIVE WORDS
B-HAG = Big Hairy Audacious Goal.
S-HAG = Small HIGHLY Achievable Goal (a Micro-Goal)
Creating a Great Workplace
As referenced in previous posts, the Big Hairy Audacious Goal (B-HAG) is to create a Great Workplace, one that is welcoming, supportive, challenging and one that has colleagues saying “I like working there.”
Achieving a B-HAG normally requires Micro-Goals. These are Small Highly Achievable Goals (S-HAGs) which if completed on a regular basis WILL help you create that better workplace.
“A small task, if it be really daily, will beat the labors of a spasmodic Hercules.” Anthony Trollope
How often do you use Positive Words?
I have previously written about the power of a complement (Micro-Goal #1). In a similar vein, I encourage clients and my audience to use positive words in conversation with colleagues and clients, your spouse or kids.
Words count, So are you?
Brilliant and Bubbly,
Cute and Cuddly,
Dazzling, Delightful, Delicious, Debonair,
Ecstatic, Exquisite and Energizing,
Friendly, Fresh, Fragrant, Flourishing
Gloriously Giggling, Gorgeously Graceful, Gentle, Glowing and Generous
You don’t need research by Positive Psychology gurus like Barbara Fredrickson to know that it is much more fun being around positive people than some Moaning Minnies. The same applies to your work colleagues. How do they see you? Do you change the vibe in a room, positively or negatively?
Everyone has down days. Everyone complains from time to time. That’s life. The challenge is to understand the balance between positive and negative phrases in your vocabulary.
You know positive words lift people.
You know positive words make you feel better.
You know work colleagues will respond better to someone who uses positive words and is complementary.
Ask yourself: “How often do I use positive words?”
Ask yourself “Have I used any of the following words (or similar) in conversation today?”
Buoyant (love that word)
The MICRO-GOAL for you today is USE POSITIVE WORDS.
I promise you, the results will be BRILLIANT!
