An Engage with Honor FAQ – “What do you do in leadership when you get new people on your team and they don’t fit in?”

An Engage with Honor FAQ  – “What do you do in leadership when you get new people on your team and they don’t fit in?”

An ‘Engage with Honor’ FAQ  – “What do you do in leadership when you get new people on your team and they don’t fit in?”

Lee Ellis’ Answer – “This is a good time to proactively apply the Golden Rule—accept them the way you would want to be accepted—openly and respectfully. Take the initiative to get to know them and help them get to know others on the team. Building understanding is the way to build acceptance and trust, and trust is the glue that binds teams together. Remember, differences tend to divide, but diversity is essential for healthy teams. Embrace the other person’s strengths and talents and tolerate their struggles. Like you, they are not perfect. Welcome them and make it work.”

Please also share your comments and experience too – thank you

– the importance of respecting the winners and encourage the losers.

With his permission, I am sharing them with you now. Read his article on LinkedIn, and share your thoughts here in this forum –
