#ThursdayThought – The Impact Of A Smile

The biggest and best antidote to alleviate stress and build trust and camaraderie in the workplace is quite simple.

Make ’em smile.

Smiling has been a proven diffuser for difficult customer issues. I should know, my grandfather was the best at it. And when it comes to diffusing difficult culture and trust issues in the workplace, a leader’s ability to smile and get their people to smile is a powerful ability.

Corny jokes and workplace pranks aside – although in the right spirit and professionalism they can have a valid impact – just a simple smile of appreciation, breaking up a tense situation or exuding a positive vibe can lift peoples spirits and boost performance.

It also bridges the gap between levels of leadership when others see across those levels a real human being that they can relate to.

Make an impact for your people ,,, make ’em smile šŸ™‚
