Seven Ways to Demonstrate Loyalty

  1. Speak positively about your leader and organization at all times.
  2. When you disagree with a decision or the direction of the organization speak only with those who have the authority to represent your concern.
  3. Use your interpersonal skills to build team unity rather than builing a personal following.  (Are you seeking loyalty to yourself or supporting loyalty to the organization?)
  4. Be an asset to your organization by demonstrating a positive attitude even in the tough times.  The attitude each one of us displays shapes the corporate culture in which we work. 
  5. Avoid using negative body language to communicate your frustration or dissatisfaction with the leadership of your organization.
  6. Work hard and go the extra mile.
  7. Express gratitude for the positive characteristics of your leader and organization.

Remember loyalty is demonstrated in your words and actions and is a reflection of your character.  What would you add to this list?

  2. Great stuff, Mac!!

    I’d add “Share ownership of all leadership decisions.” Meaning, when you don’t agree with a leadership decision, don’t convey that you’re “just the messenger” or “this wasn’t my idea.” Always show 100% support by personally owning the decision and pushing through as if it were your own idea.
