    I think it is important to note that when discussing effective leadership language, specifically the Joe and Sam example, that in situation like this, you, as the leader, are enacting a technique or better yet a skill. And that skill requires maintenance and practice to become a better more effective communicator/leader.

    In the second dialogue, I think it is interesting how the ‘leaders’ response included a question that will help both Joe and the ‘leader’ acquire information and learn, but does not attack Joe’s ego and make him defensive. This is something that I have been trying to incorporate. It requires complete awareness of word choice and of course, practice! A great book discussing how to ask questions as a leader is “Humble Inquiry” by Edgar Schein.

    This was a good read, Sir. Thanks!

  5. Are You Thoughtful & Deliberate in Everything You Do as a Leader? Because Some Small, Careless Behaviors Can be Sending “Anti-Belonging Cues” to Others. – 3×5 Leadership
    November 15, 2020 @ 11:38 pm

    […] Last week, I had the great fortune to listen to a lecture by author, Dan Coyle. Both his lecture and his book, The Culture Code (which I highly recommend), emphasize a concept of belonging cues. These refer to small, consistent behaviors that leaders enact to show others that they belong. It communicates that “I value you, your contributions to the team, and that what we are doing is important;” these build psychological safety. […]
