The Better Choices Better Leaders Make: Expectations vs Agreements

Expectations vs Agreements. When we frame an idea, a problem, or an opportunity, we are choosing our perspective. Look at a “glass as half-empty,” and we start conserving and protecting. Seeing the same glass as “half-full” and opportunity and growth emerge. Our thinking shifts simply by how we choose to look at or “frame” something. “This vs That… The Better Choices Better Leaders Make” is a video series exploring different concepts, a guide to reframing our perspective on various situations.

You can influence from anywhere in your salon. Influencing doesn’t require a title: it only requires certain thinking, behaviour, and skills. Acquire them, and you can lead an entire salon, an artistic vision, education, customer service–or just a better way to do your consultations. Leaving your mark is the most important thing you will ever do.

Leaving your mark

I am here to shift your thinking.

Let the first shift be this: It’s not what you are born with that matters. It’s what you do with it. Together we can unleash the possibilities already inside you to surprise the world.

Are you operating off of expectations or agreements?

Do you have an expectation your people show up at a certain time and on time? Do you have an expectation that they’ll dress a certain way? Do you have an expectation that they’ll support your culture, or do you have an agreement that they’ll show up on time that they’ll dress a certain way and that they’ll support your culture?

An expectation is something that you want for someone else that they may not want for themselves. An agreement has a what, by when, with consequences, and those consequences can be positive, and they can be negative.

Are you operating off of expectations that you have? Or agreements that we have?
