|Get actively involved||Whine about obstacles|
|Be a change agent||Blame “the budget”|
|Champion an idea||Take personal offense|
|Execute using your unique skills||Think of excuses for not going forward|
|Take responsibility||Bite off more than you can chew|
|Stay on task||Forget to chew what you bite off|
|Focus on issues as problems, not people as problems||Unconsciously or consciously reinforce stereotypes|
|Recognize the power of small wins||Cling to “the good old days” way of doing things – if they were so good we wouldn’t be here|
|Recognize that whatever benefits one gender or group benefits the other||Say, “We tried that.” It’s a new millennium.|
|Claim your sphere of influence and use it||Pass the buck-if you can’t address an issue, who can?|
|Respect experience regardless of position||Defer to authority|
