I’m struggling to get back into posting on the forum, having one of my dips, so I though the best way to get involved again was to start a new thread. Yes, it’s a bit daft, but then that’s a decent reflection on me as a person.
Being a CM can bring a lot of responsibility and it’s sometimes hard to keep being an angel, as that’s what’s expected right? Never to lose your cool, always deal with every situation correctly, don’t leave questions unanswered and have complete objectivity at all times. It can be a strain and all too often it’s easy to let the halo slip and it starts to strangle you. So here’s my easy to remember acronym in order to keep the halo.
H stands for Honest. Always be honest about everything as lies will always be found out at some point and will come back to haunt you.
A stands for Approachable. Ask yourself, Am I approachable? Do people feel comfortable asking me questions? Is there anything I could work on to make myself more approachable, both in real life and online?
L stands for Loyal. We need to be loyal to the community we represent, so are we seen sticking up for them? and do we take legitimate concerns of the community to our employers and not try to sweep difficult issues under the carpet.
O stands for Open. Ties in with other aspects, but if we can be seen as dealing with issues in an open as possible manner then this paints us in an excellent light.
So in summary, being Honest, Approachable, Loyal and Open will mean we can keep our HALO and always look like a little angel.
