I agree when it's the opposite sex it can feel a bit awkward but when another woman has something flattering to say I genuinely appreciate it. Perhaps it's just a female thing? I've yet to run into a situation when this has felt inappropriate.
Curious as to why you listed this as taboo...
It's easier to maintain an image behind PR firms, communication strategies and corporate policies. But when people begin posting in the moment in channels where they may feel more comfortable, true character begins to shine through.
Yes, we all will continue to make mistakes but if we focus more on our character & less on the channel [or how to respond/not respond in a particular channel] the likelihood of this stuff happening may decrease.
I see so many individuals and organizations that want to "fix" a reputation without going the distance to fix the behavior/thoughts/attitudes that's causing the reputation in the first place... If we can't get this right in the ministry world, how are we to expect others to?
[done with my Friday rant :) ]
But the guilt is upon me. So I've edged much closer to actually going.
No.. really. THANKS. ;)
[and Brentwood seemed like such a nice place ;) ]
Implementation is more important than the idea. -- The recommendations may sound fantastic but if they're not realistic enough to implement, it's wasting everyone's time. [What might sound great to senior leadership may not be received well by the rest of the troops... be sure to understand where they're coming from as well]
Don't speak in consultant-ese. It annoys everyone.
The goal is to work yourself out of a job. -- Teaching them to fish rather than rely solely on you for everything is a good thing. It strengthens their organization and your reputation.
And of course, under promise but over-deliver. Be sure everyone knows what to expect and than do your darnedest to exceed those expectations. [This includes everything from budgets, how the project is run and what is delivered at the end of the day]
