Fault-finders reject people.

Acceptance is the #1 cure for fault-finders.

Don’t expect great performance from people who feel rejected by you.

Correction cp. criticism:

1. Correction builds up. Criticism tears down.

2. Correction looks to the future. Criticism camps in the past.

3. Correction makes something better. Criticism points out what’s wrong.

4. Correction is for the advantage of others. Criticism is for personal protection.

Criticism is a relationship killer.

Dreamers figure things out AS they go. Doers figure things out BEFORE they go.

Dreamers are critical of Doers when they assume Doers have negative motives. “Those Doers are dragging their feet. They’re asking questions to be disagreeable.”

Assume Doers want to succeed. They aren’t dragging their feet. They’re trying to figure out how to get something done.

A story:

Recently, I taught a group of leaders how to energize team members by listening to stories. During the session a person peaked through the narrow window in the door.

Someone in the room suggested I invite the person in for a demonstration.

I opened the door and invited he and his wife in and asked if he might tell us a story about himself.

5 dangers of complaining:

1. Complaining makes you small. You’re smaller than the people you complain about.

2. Complaining makes you ugly. Even beautiful people look ugly when they complain.

3. Complaining leads to blaming. Complainers want someone else to do something.

4. Complaining makes you unhappy and it makes those around you unhappy.

5. Complaining is habit forming. Repeated thoughts program your brain. Having a thought makes it easier to have the same thought.

Mindset of support:

Take the perspective of the person you want to support.

Deb explains how to take perspective. “[I] think of myself as the person who is responsible for every decisions that’s made.”

4 aspects of a support-mindset:

1. Rise above checklist-thinking. Don’t focus exclusively on getting tasks done. Think about the whole organization.

2. Think beyond, “I hope he likes it.” Worrying about your own performance is important but to narrow for a support-mindset.

3. Be willing to get in trouble. You can’t seek the best interest of others and always (CYA) cover your own ass.

4. Don’t live for a great performance review or promotion.

Ever notice how two people can experience the same thing and have opposite responses?

One remains positive, even grateful. The other complains.
