Get Your Enthusiasm On!

My friends at The Leadership and Personal Development Center of
WalkTheTalk.com generously shared this information from:

180 Ways To Spread Contagious Enthusiasm:  The “How To” Book for Everyone.

This advice is oriented toward business
settings but the concepts translate just as well in to your personal and home
life.  Enthusiasm is a key element
of my most enjoyable moments and days. 
In fact: it’s my focus word for this week:  all I have to do is glance up from my work arc (that’s what
I call the area of my  desk  where I do all my writing) and there is
the reminder:  Enthusiastic!  And the picture is backed up by another
important quality (Gratitude featured on my Bold Inspirations interactive art
block from Demdaco).

Want to build contagious enthusiasm
with your team and throughout your organization?  Here are a few of my
favorite tips and techniques for your consideration:

               
Start every meeting with 3 minutes of “Good News.”
Ask people in the room to share any good thing that has happened to them, to
their family, in their community, or in the world.

               
Have a bulletin board where you post pictures of
employees’ families, weddings, graduations, vacations, new grandchildren, and
other successes.

               
Sponsor community service projects with employee
participation – clean up litter, help feed the homeless, build houses with
Habitat for Humanity, hold educational fairs for the community.

         Hold
“grapevine” meetings (informal meetings with an open          agenda giving all
employees a chance to set rumors straight) at          least
once a month to enhance communication and get worries          and concerns out in
the open.

Do You Hate House Work?
I formalized an approach to house making last year. An approach I'd inadvertently applied (willy nilly) for many years.  I created a set of cards (that I offered in a bundle) titled THREE MINUTES, Seven Minutes and ELEVEN MINUTES.  Those were the most common time frames that various house keeping

What ARE You Waiting For?
There are many practical reasons to wait.  Wait for a more auspicious time. For better funding. Ha! for ANY funding! For broader education or more deepened networked connections.  The temptation is to wait until all of those elements align.  Perfectly.  Which is why there are many people who pon
