How you do anything…a Leaders angle

I was reminded by Gaping Void today of this :

GV how you do anything

“How you do anything… is how you do everything”

Or, as a way to observe this in yourself and others, watch how people treat those who they feel don’t matter to them.

When you are in busy public places? do they act in a considerate way to others or just push past in a single-minded fashion?

In a restaurant, how do they treat the staff?

Do they thank the bus driver when they get off the bus?

In general, are they present, observant to other human beings, no matter their station or status?

Now, for leaders, be very wary.

If you are in a position of influence or authority, you will find that people are respectful towards you the great majority of the time, but is this a true assessment of their character?

if you have any doubt at all, look to spend time with those people in environments where you can assess how they behave when they aren’t making a conscious effort to impress you.
