The Surest Way To Gain Influence

Ego - Self-interestIs Your Ego Showing?

Many people attempt to gain influence by calling attention to themselves–things they’ve accomplished, places they’ve been, things they own, people they know and so forth.  While such behavior comes quite naturally to most of us, it does little to improve your standing with those around you because most people tend to resent such behavior.  What does improve your standing is to call attention to the deeds and accomplishments of others.  This works extremely well for two reasons:  First, when you call attention to the accomplishments of someone else, you make that person feel really good which naturally endears them to you.  Second, you come across to those who observed your behavior as a caring, giving human being–the kind of person they want to spend more time with.  So, the next time you’re tempted to call attention to some of your personal deeds and accomplishments realize that you won’t be benefitting yourself by doing so.  Instead, direct that attention to the accomplishments of those around you and watch your level of influence take off.

    Imagine a workplace where every employee is engaged with their work … where every employee shows up each day excited about giving every bit of energy, creativity and passion to performing their job. These employees don’t need to be motivated because they already are and they channel their motivation toward creating a competitive edge for their company that can’t be easily copied. They’re constantly making innovative changes to products, services and customer experiences while providing superior levels of customer service which results in loyal customers. This means higher levels of repeat and referral business which, in turn, translates into significant increases in market share. In addition, absenteeism and turnover rates for these fully engaged employees are far below industry averages because they absolutely love what they do. This book presents a new management model that guarantees an employee engagement level of 100%. If you implement this model in your organization, every one of your employees will become engaged with their work; all working at their full potential. Think of what it would mean to the success of your business or organization if you could get all of your employees engaged with their work.
