Include People When Making Rules At Office Or Home
Having certain rules in place at home and workplace makes a huge difference. Guidelines for wake up/sleep time, meal time, mannerisms, dress code, work ethics and so on, instills discipline and culture. But sometimes while establishing rules, we don’t take consent from people who need to follow them. So, a few people either do not comply, or they comply unwillingly.
Take this moment to see how you establish rules by taking everyone’s consent, and create willingness in them to follow the rules –
I am a powerful being. I discharge my responsibilities sincerely. I live by my values. In my role with family, friends, colleagues… I discipline and empower everyone with respect. When certain habits are to be created… manners to be followed…ethics to be adopted… best practices to cultivate…I involve everyone in decision-making. I consult every individual…at home…at office… I don’t distinguish them based on age, role or position… I treat everyone equally…I involve everyone in the discussion. I create a sense of belonging. I convey my suggestion of what to do…how to do…why to do…I explain clearly… I don’t impose my views…I seek their feedback… I give them the freedom to express their views…without fear or inhibition… they appreciate being involved…being heard…being consulted. Sometimes they have a different opinion. I understand them…I evaluate the best option…I arrive at a solution…a rule or guideline which everyone agrees to implement…everyone is happy to implement. I take their consent…I help them implement it. They willingly follow what is agreed upon… they take accountability. They are comfortable following the rules. They respect me… I respect them…I guide everyone to become better individuals. I create a healthy, high-vibration environment at home and office…where there is discipline…good etiquette…healthy habits… happiness…and harmony.
Repeat this affirmation a few times to cultivate an inclusive culture when laying down rules and regulations. You will see how people will want to follow rules, rather than having to follow them.
