who walk their talk.
Robbins is an American self-help author and motivational speaker
I remeber a time, where the
word 'problem' was banned from leadership seminars and motivational
If one used the expression: 'my problem is ....' she/he got
corrected and needed to re-start: 'my challenge is ....'.
I do not doubt the power of
words, and that the way we use them changes their meaning. I see a
difference, a huge difference even, in these two words. Especially when
they are used in a business environment. Problem or challenge?
Here are my thoughts:
My personal daily
My experience as a business
owner proves that what one learns in every seminar about 'change
you want to change others?
Start changing yourself first!
I quote Tony Robbins in this
newsletter because he names my most difficult daily challenge:
.... who walk their talk.
No, I do not feel that I need
to be able to run a lathe with a tool post grinder as good as my Team
Member Billy does. That's Billy's job and I am holding him accountable for
doing an excellent job.
It is my attitude as a Leader, my
behavior as a person which is on display.
Do I walk my talk? Am I holding myself
accountable? My daily challenge.
Challenging my Team
I am pretty good in
challenging others within my company. So, I do not have any 'problems' to
create nearly constant challenges for my Team Members.
Still, I had to learn to
introduce and to explain the challenge accordingly.
First, I have to create the
framework for the change and to make sure everybody not only understands,
but feels the same way.
Then, and only then I can hold my Team
Members accountable for their challenges.

our two Sloughis. The rough challenge is over and, because it was not an
unfriendly fight, there are no 'bad feelings'. They are friends.
Team at Alrol we learned to accept the challenges not as 'unfriendly' and
to fight them, but to live them. Towards one single goal: to
constantly increase excellence in our work, our Team and our company.
