Sometimes when things are bad or when something just isn’t going the way we want it to go it can easily change our attitude and impact the rest of our day. These are the times when we as supervisors or leaders, need to be aware of others around us and take signs from the individuals we support.  Taking the time to acknowledge those little things that staff are doing, saying ‘thanks’ more often, bringing in donuts for everyone or even making sure we smile can turn anyone’s day around.

We have to remember “What we think or what we know or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do.”

Take time this week to let your actions speak louder than your words and go that extra mile for those at work or at home. If a mile seems too long, then just take a step but do something.
