Leveraging positive leadership, I introduced morning reflections to our safety huddles to foster a positive mindset, sharing inspirational quotes and insights aimed at framing challenges positively. This approach received positive feedback, with others adopting the practice. Mindset discussions during leader rounding and one-to-one meetings further contribute to thriving teams and excellent performance. Amid outcome-driven organizational norms, taking moments for personal reflection positively influences team well-being and performance.
