Ever throw up a high-five sign to a 2-year-old?

That 2-year-old will raise the same high-five sign.

  • We humans imitate.
  • It's in our DNA.
  • If we see John do X, we're likelier to do X.

Peep:

  • You adopted your manner of speech by conforming to those around you.
  • You picked up your work ethic by imitating those around you.
  • You wore a certain style of clothes by copying those you admired.

How Do You Influence Your Company?

Use the power of imitation.

Because we're heavily influenced by imitation, anything you/your-staff do at your office sends a signal to Billy B.:

  • "Hey $^@! I'll subconsciously do that too!"

Peep issues:

  • Lazy workers? Start working like a mofo on roido producing freaksih workodos -- or fill your staff with workaholics.
  • Extravagantly wasteful spending? Penny-pinch like a %^@^^@ and start publicizing how much you saved -- or fill your staff with coupon-clippers.
  • Bored work environment? Start being enthusiastic like a freak non-stop-can't-stop-dancing-like-1999 -- or fill your staff with happy people.

What model behaviors exist in your workplace = absolutely, freaktastically, contagious.

You/groups-of-people do one thing, someone else picks up on it, the others start adopting the behavior -- and before you know it, WHABAM! -- a freak load starts doing it.

WIN.

Start with models.
