If you or someone you know has a drug or alcohol problem, then there is a certain amount of deception which is occurring within you. For many people, there is the denial of a problem or the susceptibility to a problem. For some, it is simply about being unable to cope with certain situations. Here are some examples.
Instead of saying, “I did nothing wrong,” say “How would the situation have been handled by a better leader than I am?” This allows you to keep away from attacking yourself, but also asks a question about improvement. It’s about self improvement.
Instead of saying, “I don’t want to cope with that,” say “Is there a small part of this that I can get started on now, or is there another time when I would feel better about handling this?” This statement takes away the pressure of getting the whole thing dealt with at once, and opens up the possibility of doing it all at once, but just incrementally.
Instead of saying, “I am unhappy,” say “I wonder what put me in this bad mood, and what steps can I take to get back to my previous peaceful and motivated mood?” This makes you more aware of yourself and your surroundings and it makes you pay attention to yourself throughout the day.
One of the best ways to improve telling yourself the truth is to implement employee drug testing in your company. This means that you have to be accountable for the health and safety of your employees and yourself. That’s a big responsibility and demands accurate information, which is why CMM Technology provides high quality LifeLoc FC10 breathalyser devices, drug test kits with adulterant tests built right into them, and we even provide breathalyser recalibration services for businesses throughout Australia. Employee drug testing is extremely important in maintaining an attitude of personal responsibility and accountability in companies. Both employees and managers need to know the consequences for irresponsible actions. Onsite drug testing is available from our sister site, while drug test equipment is sold by CMM Technology.
