Communicate:  Never assume they get it.  We as leaders must go where they are.  Our world is their world.  Ask plenty of questions, practice active listening.

Create:  Must be intentional about a growth environment.  The environment is growing when people are:

  • Challenged
  • Atmosphere is affirming
  • Comfortable with being out of their comfort zone
  • Growth is modeled and expected
  • Forward thinking
  • Desiring positive change

Collaborate:  Add value to one another. Three charateristics of collaboration:

  • Like one another
  • Work hard for each other
  • Trust each other

Celebrate:  Celebrate the wins.  The common theme is one another.
