I’m Contagious!

I’m Contagious! post image

Our words are powerful.

If we use words that focus on the negative, that negative perspective and attitude will infuse our conversations and infect others.

If, instead, we choose to use positive, uplifting words, our positive perspective will permeate our interactions with others.

On a day that marks the beginning of launch week for Dr. Kathy Cramer’s new book, Lead Positive:What Highly Effective Leaders See, Say, and Do, I must admit, I find it challenging, at times, to follow her advice to focus on what’s working instead of what isn’t working, to see possibilities instead of problems.

Because my attitude is contagious, I must be careful what I say and do, as a leader, as mother, as a friend — in every interaction.

For example, my kids and my team are sometimes grumpy on Monday mornings. I can choose to be grumpy and join in complaining about Monday, or I can choose positive words that focus on the possibilities of a new week and the good things we can look forward to together.

What do people catch from you?

Are your words positive, focused on what’s working and what’s possible?

Or do you tend to talk about problems and what’s not working?

Reading Kathy’s book has given me a new awareness of how my own words and attitudes and their effect on others. I am committed to becoming a #leadpositive leader. I hope it catches on!

I am happy to support Kathy Cramer’s book launch this week. I encourage you to buy the book today to learn more about how you can become a #leadpositive leader.
