In this powerful interview for my SiriusXM radio show, Mark shares:
- The “great ones” find what they are good at and refine it—then they add value to others by sharing it. People pay for the value you share with them, either through the products or services you provide.
- Acknowledgment is critical. People are motivated by acknowledgement from those in their personal and professional networks.
- TSA says “If you see something, say something.” The same is true in improving the performance of your family and co-workers. They respond to positive acknowledgement.
- It was asked in a recent study, “What would make you happier at work?” 35% said, “More money is all I need.” 65% said, “Acknowledgment from my superiors would make the biggest impact!”
- People are always around other people, but often not focused on those people in a personal way. But like a raffle, you must be present in their lives to win!
- Make people feel valued. Heroes don’t always wear a cape. There are heroes and she-roes around you and all they need is some appreciation to fly higher!
- Don’t count your worth by comparing your life to others. Instead, draw your best picture, that only you can draw.
- Every follower asks questions of their leader:
1) “Where are we going?”
2) “How are we going to get there?”
3) “If I follow your lead, do you have my back on this?”
4) “Do you care about me as a person?”
- Barbara Jordan taught, “It is more important to be interested, than to be interesting!” Great people tend to be curious about the lives and background of others.
