There are a number of phrases you don’t want to hear as a leader. I heard one of them last weekend.
“My friend put in a new leaders application and she hasn’t heard anything”.
If there is one thing you want to get right is making a process of becoming one of our team easy. One of your goals as a leader is too eliminate these utterances through a process known as communication — Don’t say much, but say it often!
Some other deadly sentences include, but are not limited to:
“No I didn’t get into a service this weekend, dilantin price I just served”
“But this has been happening for ages”
“I didn’t have my team leaders phone number”
“My tee-shirt is in the wash”
“There was a team meeting this week?”
“Yes there was a lot of blood, but it didn’t look too serious” (okay, that one has never happened to me)
