What I love about humans Gosh I know that humans can be irritating, however they can also be inspiring and energising because they are well....human. I think it was Mitch Joel that said "Be you, everyone else is taken!" I love that idea, love the idea of revelling in your uniqueness. Your unique qualities is what makes you, you. Each one of us has unique ideas, unique talents, unique personalities - the world would not be as rich if every person was the same. I find that great leaders love that uniqueness, they love the diversity. So how do you make that work for you and as a leader how it can work for your team U= Understand yours and team members unique passions and tap into them. Play to people's strengths N= No person will ever be the same. Enjoy that, learn to enjoy getting to know your team as individuals. I= Individuals enjoy being valued, have a need to be needed. Tap into that by developing a positive culture. Each person will have different needs but the fun part is working them out. The return on your time investment is huge. You will make your leadership stand out from the crowd if you respect and value at an individual level. Q= Quit seeking conformity and encourage uniqueness of thought. U= Understand the difference between leading with boundaries vs leading with rules E= Encourage people to be themselves, encourage them to express themselves. That feeling of creating value and being listened to, can result in as much as 25% increase in productivity.
