Me, Them, Us

The leadership conferences and quip quotes exist in abundance. Theres always some witty remark or phrase to entice players in the company to participate in moving the company along it’s intended goals and missions.

There is no different when it comes to promoting company goals. The challenge is great. The goals are lofty in addition to aspiring.

Part of our success is knowing what approach to take. Mental awareness, and common sense aid us in being intelligent in our approach when it comes to dealing with fellow employees and in completing the mission statement.

You can decide to take the ‘Me’ approach when every job action is done thinking primarily of yourself. The work is about me getting a paycheck. It’s about me identifying myself.

A second approach is the ‘Them’ approach. Job satisfaction or dissatisfaction is always based on them. They do things to make you happy, angry, all out mad! How can you/I succeed in our mission as employees if our approach focuses on what they/them do?

The final approach takes away the greatest obstacle to being successful leaders, employees in a company with highly demanding goals. The great obstacle in our way is separation. The ‘Me’ approach and the ‘Them’ approach separate employees. When we employ the “Us” approach we claim ownership of the team effort. We are joined as one.

Working is not about Me, or Them. It is about Us. Not until we decide to regard all of us as being on the same venture, accomplishing the same goals will we reach our fullest potential.

Until Next time
