May I introduce a new thought? If I gave you a rubber band, how many ways can you think of that that rubber band can be used? I want you to take 2 minutes to write down all the ways that a rubber band can be used.
It may be no surprise to hear that negative thinking is one of the reasons for underachievement. Your life is built on your self-image and that image will depend on what you tell yourself. When you choose (and you do choose) to engage in negative thinking you are deciding to believe in your inability rather than your possibility. But it’s not just you!

“We have policies, processes, and procedures; why can’t my employees just comply?” “We explain the initiatives, and yet no one seems to get it.” “Why is my team disengaged?” It could be that you don’t have a policy or procedure problem, a goals problem, or even a process problem. What you may have, is a “failure to communicate and align your managers.”
According to Gallup, 51% of employees are looking for a new job, and 68% of employees believe they are overqualified for the job they have. Even engaged employees are job hunting at an alarming rate — 37%. Employees who change jobs cite career growth opportunities, pay and benefits, management, company culture, and job fit as reasons for doing so.
The performance of your company is directly tied to the performance of your employees, so one of the best ways to develop your company is to develop the people who work for you.
