I’m a part of it.
My team is great because I take responsibility for making it so.
If I want my team to perform at their best and push me to do the same, I need to give and ask for constant feedback and coaching.
If I want my team to hang out together after work, I need to send out the “let’s meet for drinks” e-mail.
If I want my team to support each other in our goals, I need to set, post, and ask for support on my goals – and help others do the same.
When I take responsibility for my work environment, I don’t place blame or set unspoken expectations on others. I don’t blame my boss for not being the example. I don’t roll my eyes at my colleagues for not handling a situation like I would have. The responsibility for me to enjoy my job is mine – not theirs.
The real shifts happen when I take responsibility in the other areas of my life.
“My relationship is great because I’m in it.”
“My family is great because I’m in it.”
We have the power to make a difference. When I take responsibility for the environments and relationships I’m in, I am able to harness that power.
