Home' Capricornus Quarterly : CQ Dec 2017 Jan 2018 Contents In this edition of you will see that there are a
plethora of outstanding results reported for 2017.
However, in reading these articles it is important for
students, teachers and parents to remember that
respect is needed to produce the best results we can.
Simon Sinek, author of Start with Why and
Leaders Eat Last, recently stayed at the Four
Seasons in Vegas, where he met Noah, a barista who was so sharp that Sinek left
a 100 percent tip. “Do you like your job?” Sinek asked. “I love it,” Noah replied. The
reason? His managers regularly ask how he’s doing and if he needs anything to
do his job better. Noah also works at another Vegas resort, but he hates it there
because the managers don’t care about his personal well-being or improvement.
In developing our leadership practices there are some simple things
we can do to gain the respect of others. These include:
Lecture less. Everything a leader does is microscoped, so be aware
of the possible perceptions of your actions. If you’re 30 minutes late
to work, you’re not dedicated. If you congratulate Stephanie on a
piece of good work and then ignore Peter when he does the same,
you’re playing favourites. Exhibit the behaviour you desire.
Get personal. Be efficient with emails, social media and texts, but don’t let
them replace talking. Walk and see someone to give them a compliment. Make
people feel like you care. Email doesn’t do that. Human interaction does.
Pocket your phone. Putting your phone on a chair or dinner table,
even facedown, tells everyone they’re not the priority. “ When you show
deference to the group, you’re repaid in loyalty,” says Sinek.
I hope you and the people you love have a wonderful, safe, happy and
healthy Christmas, New Year and Summer Holiday. See you soon.
