Regardless of whether you're leading a team or you're a part of one, what you say and what you do influences those around you. The culture you create by your words and actions is a living thing. You can cultivate it to drive amazing results, or you can let it languish and see your quality and culture suffer as a result.
At the same time, not only how you speak, but when you speak and who you speak to contributes to the culture you're driving. Are you giving useful feedback in a way that the person you're giving it to hears it and then wants to do something about it? What kind of feedback are you providing to your team? And how are you encouraging them to achieve the results you know they're capable of?
The most effective feedback is the kind that you take the time to craft so that it's the right message delivered at the right time and for the right reason to the right person. In taking this time, you are showing a deep level of caring for your team, and that type of caring does not go unnoticed.
