Just Tell Them I'm Not Here

Digitally Remastered! You know, one of the things that's easy to forget is that our team members pay attention to every little thing we say and do. Like it or not, we set the example. And when we ask an employee to do something that's questionable—like making up an excuse because we've forgotten something or don't want to deal with someone— it has an impact. It might not seem like much at the time, but all those "little tears" can eventually begin to rip our organization's integrity fabric to pieces. As leaders, we need to hold ourselves and our peers accountable to make sure that doesn't happen.
