One of the best questions we can ask ourselves is how do we create an atmosphere to bring out the best in others?
We may not be able to shape others, but we can influence the energy and environment. We can lighten the mood, listen, smile, empathize, offer help, be inspiring, recognize their strengths, make them feel like a contributor… these are things we can control.
It’s easy to lose sight of this and spend our efforts on things that don’t matter as much.
Let us seek to bring out the best in others and notice when we do this, we bring out the best in ourselves today.
