Conscious Communicator Power Word #35 – STANDARDS (< 120 words)


This week’s Power Word raises the bar on behavior and performance…STANDARDS!

Dictionary.com defines STANDARDS as “something considered by general consent as a basis of comparison; a normal requirement of quality, quantity, level or grade.”

There are 2 parts to setting STANDARDS.

One is deciding what they should be; the second is acting consistent with them.

Organizational leaders often unwittingly communicate nebulous STANDARDS through their actions and language.

Human beings adopt as acceptable, behavior and performance STANDARDS they experience around them, not what is told to them, read in an employee manual or seen on hallway posters.

Reinforce your STANDARDs or commit to a new one for yourself by leaving a comment below as to what it is.

‘Til next time, make it a great week!
