Do you have an exciting culture? Do people show up for work, the conference call, or the staff meeting pumped up and ready to go?
There is always the, “One in every crowd.”
One who brings in the motivation, enthusiasm and passion.
There may also be the one who drags their butt around like they walked 100 miles to get there.
The desirable, of course, is the engaging passion for what is about to happen next. How is that created?
Always Up to You
When you attend the meeting, the workshop, or the convention, what makes the difference? Does the power of one change the atmosphere and outcomes?
Like many things in life, it seems that you only get out of it what you put into it.
It is true for learning. If you don’t read, study, and experience something deeper you probably aren’t going to pick up much.
It is true for the artist, the researcher, and the chef, the effort you apply will have a direct correlation to what spins out of it.
Does your contribution affect culture?
Think about this when you attend the next event that involves other people. How you show up will have a lot to do with what others will experience. Your enthusiasm, like attitude, is contagious.
The culture then, which by the way is a long-run game, depends on how the vibes are spread. Are you springing into action or dragging around like you just walked 100 miles?
You always have an opportunity to make a difference.
The question then becomes, “Will you?”
