Simon (aka Ann) says:
Draw a vertical line and write Don't Do at the bottom and Do at the top.
Now draw a horizontal line across that and write Don't Say on the left and Say on the right. Take a look.
Consider the last conversation you had with an employee or a recent meeting, which quadrant are you in?
If you Don't Say and Don't Do = you are the invisible manager
If you Do but Don't Say = you aren't earning any credit for anything you do
If you Say but Don't Do = yikes, that's how we lose credibility and trust with the team. Don't be that guy!
If you Say and Do - woohoo you are the man! That's the place to be. Your team and your colleagues can depend on you and will trust and follow you. Be that guy!
