Here is a quote I like by Marcus Aurelius, “Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.”
Yes, it got me thinking…..are we supporting ourselves and our staff to consciously think better and smarter? Or do we just presume that we all have good thinking skills?
Research tells us that people who develop critical thinking skills are more able to solve problems, become less dependent on supervisors, are more innovative and more adaptable. And when people are thinking more positively, people perform better at work. Happy people are more successful at work!
So if success is important to you, and you want to retain happy and innovative staff who are resilient, how are you encouraging your team to think positively, think critically and learn the skills to deal with problems and challenges more successfully?
There is never a better time to put thinking skills back on the agenda. Whether it’s your service delivery staff, administration or leadership and management team, everyone needs to know how to use their brain effectively and adopt a learning culture.
