Blame? Excuses? Shame?🤷♂️When you are under stress, pressure, tiredness – what is your ‘default’ inefficient behaviour? Not knowing has not only an impact on you, but on your team members and peers as well.
🙋🏻♂️Are you a Blamer? Pointing the finger at someone else for what has taken place?
🙋🏻♂️Are you Lenient? Lightening, reduce or lessen the impact of actions to make it easier on yourself or another person?
🙋🏻♂️Do you make Excuses? ‘But’ and ‘because’ are excuse words that are often used when an action has not taken place.
🙋🏻♂️Do you Exonerate? Would you rather ‘sweep it under the carpet’ and forget about it so no one is to blame?
🙋🏻♂️Do you Defend? You know you are wrong, and you maintain a set position as a default, without questioning or reason.
🙋🏻♂️Do you Shame yourself? The opposite of Blame – do you point the finger at yourself and ‘beat yourself up’ about your actions rather than taking action?
Take a moment – what is your default? Identifying and reflecting on your ‘go to’ inefficient behaviour shows strength rather than weakness – it helps you prevent these behaviours from staying around longer than needed (and we all do all of them to an extent).
