Transcript: – Hey there, friend, it’s Stefanie Krievins founder of The Pro Troublemaker Nation. And today we’re on step seven of 10 of being a Pro Troublemaker. Here’s what Pro Troublemakers know that other folks don’t, that troublemakers don’t do. Pro Troublemakers unify the team. We bring people together because we know that there is a richness in the diversity of opinions, thoughts, experiences, worldviews that make our team better. That make us serve our clients even more effectively and impactfully. We know that by including everyone at the table, giving them a voice, we make our work better. Our profits are higher. Our teams are more inclusive. We have longer tenure with our people because of that diversity and inclusion. Pro Troublemakers know how to bring people together. We stop bad gossip in its tracks. There is such a thing as positive gossip. I want you to use that every once in a while. It’s a valuable tool for celebrating with your colleagues and creating some positivity there. Bad gossip, always destructive, always. So as Pro Troublemakers, we stop that dead in its tracks. We stop that meeting after the meeting dead in its tracks. If people can’t speak up in a meeting, we need to equip them to speak up in the meeting, not have that meeting after the meeting where they’re essentially gossiping and using company time to destroy the team, unacceptable behavior. So Pro Troublemaker find ways to bring people together. Find ways so that all of us can share our perspective so that it’s valid so that it’s valued and it’s valuable and it’s heard with other people. That is our gift as a Pro Troublemaker. All right, my friends, let’s get off the internet. Let’s go find our colleagues. Find ways to bring them together in a way that solves real impactful business problems. And I’ll see you next time.
