Challenge Myself: Day #96 Empowerment in the Workplace

Today is Day #95 of the Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today says to list your 5 Guiding Principles.

These are what I could come up with at a short notice.

1- Be a leader.
2. Never make anyone do a job you yourself wouldn't do.
3. Encourage others at work.
4. Work as a team
5. Involve others in taking responsibility.

The book says,

Your guiding priniciples are those that reflect your core beliefs and guide not only what you do but why and how you do it. Try to list five principles that you use to guide you in your work or career.

For example,

  • Do you expect others to demonstrate ethical behavior?
  • Do your believe in being open and transparent?
  • How about being flexible, innovative, efficient, and effective?
  • Do you value diversity in your treatment of people?

If your guiding principles and those of your company are in alignment, you are likely to be much happier on the job than if they are in conflict.

Just For Today: I will use these principles at my own workplace.
