“I just wish we could move forward. The problem is all of these naysayers.”
What is in a name?
Naysayers are problems. They prevent progress. They take your brilliant plans with tons of upside and see only the risks and the weaknesses. They stop you from changing yourself and your organization.
Stabilizers on the other hand are essential. No business can operate without them. They prevent chaos. They cut apart poorly conceived plans and shore up weaknesses in good plans. They maintain the history of an organization. They save you from charging head first into big mistakes.
The way we label coworkers matters. Dismissive or derisive labels amplify frustration, infighting, politicking, and marginalizing. Appreciative labels breed respect, open communication, honest dialogue, strong relationships, and yes, progress – even when the coworkers are stabilizers.
