It’s about supporting people and encouraging growth. None of us start out knowing all of the answers. Take the time to explain your ideas/needs and foster growth.
Include all members. Do not assume someone is not interested or that they should know what you are planning. Invite everyone with the same level of excitement and expectation.
Take the time to communicate in three different ways: 1. verbal, 2. non-verbal (written, asl, ect.), and 3. social media (Facebook, Twitter, email, website).
Respect each other at all times. Your words have the power to change the world. Do not speak from anger or frustration. Use yourself as an example of what a successful professional looks like.
Take responsibility. Do not change the rules or requirements mid process. Handle concerns behind the scenes without creating new issues for others.
Share the credit. Recognize all those who help with events and projects. Simply say “thank you.” It is the little things we do that make all the difference in someone’s day.
