Ok, I admit – Fake it till you make it – may work on a few occasions!
But we cannot – Fake it till you make it – to become a team player!
Yet, we all see bad advice on:
- How to give feedback (by feedback sandwich)?
- How to build rapport (by mirroring)?
- The famous team-building exercises
- Pretending as if I care (How was your weekend?)
Fake ceremonies and rituals lead to fake relationships.
Relationships are a matter of something very deep. We call it our heart!
Teams are built on deep bonding, trust, care and sacrifice. As a leader, it all starts with you. Are you ready to put your heart and soul into developing meaningful relationships within your organisation?
The alternative is – Fake it till you make it! But, please don’t go there; it sucks!
