If you want to win someone over then let him know that you know what he does when he is at work.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Most people take at least some pride in their work...so they tell others about what they do when they are at work. 

Few people have the interest or take to time to truly listen to others, so they never really hear let alone remember what others tell them.

You can listen. You can remember. You can let others know you care about what they do at work.

You can inspire people!

 

 

Talk so people listen...listen so people talk.

'How To Talk So People Listen', that's the title of a book written by Sonya Hamlin in 2006.

How To Listen So People Talk...well, that's in the territory of the art of asking good questions

It seems - providing advice on how to succeed is nowhere near as difficult as helping people succeed.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Most people have lots of advice [opinions, suggestions, criticisms, commands, etc.] to share with others.

Few people edit/tailor their communications to actually help others.

For decades, sales people have been taught: "Sell, Don't Tell".

That sales education aligns with this Thought Tweet. In sales, people are taught to give consideration to the other party's needs.

"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader."

John Quincy Adams

When self-confidence shines it is charismatic, magnetic, & contagious.

And when self-confidence shines it keeps ego in the proper light. Put another way, it allows ego to perform in most-productive ways...ways that are appealing and so inspire other people.

If you are uncomfortable with your work, that's contagious. If you enjoy your work, that's contagious.

What type of attitude are you spreading?

How much is your attitude affecting the people you work with?

Are you inspiring people & growing profits?

Inspire business people by letting them know that you know what they do when they are at work.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

If you believe people know what you do when you are at work then check again...you may be quite surprised to find others have a very fuzzy impression of your work. Or, they may know almost nothing about your work.

You do not have to emulate them...you can stand out...you can ask them and learn what they do...then you can know what they do...and they will appreciate you for it.
