By Barbara Wold, Retail & Consumer Tips, 4/4/2007
Daily affirmations
  1. I am present and I pay attention
  2. I am respectful (and never speak negatively or gossip about another employee or a customer)
  3. I trust my employees to do the right thing
  4. I trust them to have common sense
  5. I ask for their opinions and listen carefully to them
  6. I understand that they are interested in the good of the whole company
  7. I support their growth by having high expectations for them and then I inspire them to live up to those expectations.
  8. I invite them to use their strengths and stretch
  9. I give them feedback in a number of ways:
    • I show my confidence both verbally and behaviorally
    • I behave in a way that communicates to them that I think they have the "right stuff"
  10. I keep information flowing
  11. I honor who they are
Tack this one up on your wall or in your calendar and make sure that you live these qualities every day.
