  7. Creating Your Culture @ERIKREAGAN THINGS TO DO • Use a

    thoughtful and logical approach to discussing ideas and options. • Do your homework, because others will have already done their share of it. • Assure others that there won't be unexpected surprises. • Ask 'how' oriented questions to explore opinions. • Be certain that the information you have is credible. • Make an organized appeal for support and contributions. • Keep on task with the business agenda.
  8. Creating Your Culture @ERIKREAGAN THINGS TO AVOID • Provide some

    time to warm up to the ideas and for mutual ownership. • Don't be rude, abrupt, or too fast-paced in your delivery. • Don't fail to follow through. If you say you're going to do something, do it. • Don't rush into business or the agenda; provide some time to break the ice. • Don't be domineering or demanding. • If you disagree don't let it reflect on others personally, and don't let it affect the relationship.
