In spite of how well an organization is performing, there will always be an aspect of immense importance that is not performing well. It might be a compensation system, an internal overhead allocation process, the way new people are on-boarded, the means by which customer information is gathered, or a host of other processes or procedures. Leaders are willing to step up and take responsibility for addressing these opportunity areas. And they realize and communicate that working to improve certain processes which may have flaws, does not imply that the entire organization is broken or poorly managed.

For Generation X, there are many impending catastrophic issues. Unless we change "business as usual" and take a collective global stand against the degradation of the environment, our doom is sealed. Although I believe greatly in the resilience of the human spirit and our ability to intervene, one cannot help but wonder if we will reach a point where there are no more opportunities for intervention.
We must find opportunities to recognize others when they are behaving in ways that support and promote any or all of our core values. In fact, I believe that we do. I look at the GEM (Going the Extra Mile) recognition certificates I&rsquo ve received. And behind each one is a story of how an individual or team supported me by taking actions that promoted our values. By helping others &ldquo see&rdquo that recognition is firmly connected to all four of our Core Values we can reinforce those positive behaviors and together move closer and closer to our shared goals.

Once you have identified a behavior you want to change, how do you track progress? Are you going to be tracking your own progress? Are you going to do this daily, weekly, or monthly? If you are serious in your desire to make progress, perhaps you should consider an added layer of accountability. People often act very differently when they know that they must be accountable to another person. When someone else is going to be checking in on your progress you may be more likely to stay true to your goal. Is there a colleague, supervisor, or coach you could let in on your goal to help keep you motivated and accountable? Can an aspect of your goal be added to a daily task list, weekly staffing meeting or even a company newsletter?

&ldquo They (caciques) provide care and demonstrate how respect should be shown. Not just within, and between the communities and clans but also to other indigenous (people), Ticos  , Siboh  and the environment. Leaders teach and show but do not dictate. They create frameworks for learning through experimentation. They encourage children and adults alike to make their own decisions and understand the nature of responsibility but they are always there as the final safety (net) and to dispense wisdom when asked.&rdquo
