“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.” -Henry Ford
Did you ever visit another area in your own company (or another company)…and it was incredible?
You attended a meeting where every single person was prepared. Or every single worker was wearing PPE. Or the supervisor knew exactly whom to contact in an emergency and when/where to evacuate in an emergency?
These qualities (being prepared, wearing PPE, etc.) didn’t happen because of a rule. They are the result of expectations.
When more is expected of us, we tend to expect more of ourselves.
When you give others a great reputation to live up to, they perform in a powerful way.
What do you expect of yourself? What expectations do you have of others?
Positive or negative, they (and you) will live up to it.
