Change almost never works like that!

 


Change is easy, right? The boss makes a decision, and employees implement it—right?

If you’re in business, you know that change almost never works like that. In fact, it can be the most difficult thing in the world.

The Cost of Conflict!

 



Unmanaged employee conflict is perhaps the largest intangible cost in organizations today,­ and probably the least recognized!

It maybe a new way where companies can reduce cost rather than the standard practice of downsizing their operation.

It is estimated that over 65% of performance problems result from strained relationships between employees ­and not due to lack of individual skill or experience!

Yesterday's Manager vs. Tomorrow's Leader!


The mindset of yesterday’s manager—accepting compromise, keeping things tidy—bred complacency.

Tomorrow’s leaders must raise issues, debate them, and resolve them. They must rally around a vision of what a business can become.

Successful People Are Optimistic!

  


The optimist believes that this is the best of all possible worlds. The pessimist is afraid that this might be true!

I stop at a restaurant with my friend. He complains, “Look at this cup of coffee, it’s half-empty!” I respond, “Oh, that’s too bad, they gave me one that is half-full.” We both received the same amount of coffee!

But I certainly sound like the successful one. Success isn’t limited to objective findings; one person’s poison is another’s cure. In other words, if an optimist and a pessimist both win the same prize in a lottery, only the optimist will appear to be successful!

Optimism helps you see the advantages in any given situation. Successful people with an optimistic outlook are better able to identify the silver lining in any given situation.

Successful People Are Flexible!



Life is dynamic—always changing. Heraclitus said, “You can’t step in the same river twice.” The truth is that you can’t even step in the same river once, because even as you’re step in the river, it is changing.

Appreciating the dynamics of life and being able to go with the flow provides enormous advantages to finding new ways of doing things or getting places or creating opportunities.

Successful People are flexible and take advantage of new situations.

Successful People Are Insightful!

 



There are two types of knowledge—explicit and implicit (or tacit). 

Explicit knowledge is the kind people gain from reading books and going to school—factual stuff. 

Implicit knowledge is what we achieve through observing and experiencing—things that can’t really be taught.

Both types of knowledge are important to help guide decisions or choose particular pathways.

A hunch may be an uninformed guess—worth as much as flipping a coin—or it may be based on in-depth explicit and implicit knowledge—and insight!

We all have insight to varying degrees, yet some are better than others at being open to hearing those inner voices. Making use of this knowledge depends on your ability to access this information and trust in yourself.

Having insight involves integrating explicit and implicit knowledge with an understanding of social situations and emotions, both yours and others'.

Insightful people have higher emotional and social intelligence—being able to “read” people and understand unspoken issues in a social situation.

Successful people seek knowledge and experiences and make the best use of their insight.

Successful people are opportunists! 

They have the ability to take advantage of novel and often concealed opportunities when they arise. Many people are blind to opportunities because they don’t notice them or because they are inflexible and stuck in their ways.

People who practice opportunism see opportunities all around them and are able to use them to their advantage.

Being an opportunist involves being mindfully aware; being flexible enough to change your original plans; and being open-minded enough to take advantage of these new opportunities.

We often think of people who have traveled extensively throughout the world as being “lucky.” 

The truth is that most people have had many opportunities to travel at different times in their lives, yet have not taken advantage of them. 

They may have felt like they didn't have the money, needed to work, wanted to start their career, or didn’t want to leave family or friends behind. 

While there were many possible reasons at the time for not going, years later these reveal themselves as mere excuses for not taking advantage of opportunities.

Successful People Are Proactive!

 


"Successful" people make things happen. They are proactive rather than reactive. They make their future. And when you can take responsibility for your words, actions, and behavior, you have more control of your destiny. 

There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch things happen; and those who wonder what just happened.

Yes, you might get lucky and a $100 bill might fly in through your window while you’re sitting on the couch, but your luck of finding some money on the street would improve if you were outside walking in the first place.

A colleague may appear to be lucky when he tells you that he got eight new clients today; until you find out that he started working two hours before you and skipped his lunch break. He also took that online course on “Completing The Sale” that you thought wouldn’t be worth it.

Successful People Are Mindful!



Mindfulness is being non-judgmentally alert and aware of what’s going on around you as well as inside you—how you’re thinking and feeling.

Mindfulness occurs on a moment-by-moment basis. When you are operating mindlessly, on auto-pilot, you are unlikely to observe opportunities or take advantage of a situation.

One important key to happiness, and a key factor in becoming successful, is developing a mindfulness mindset.

How will you find that $100 bill stuck in a tiny place, or know whether to make a successful deal when your counterpart has a clear predilection for acceptance, if you don’t have a keen sense of situational awareness?

Successful People Treat Others with Respect


Successful People are typically respectful of others. 

Rather than focus on your own success first, help others develop and shine by respecting their strengths and talents.

Remember that to give respect is to get respect.

People with high emotional intelligence are usually successful in most things they do. Because they have a deep understanding of self, they make others feel good about themselves, and they go through life with much more ease and enthusiasm.

Very Successful People Put Others First!

(Image Credit: jeffrossblog.com)


Napoleon Hill, the renowned self-help author, interviewed some of the most successful people in the United States decades ago. He found that almost without exception the very successful people focus on helping others get what they want.

It was that singular and fanatical focus on the customer that made these men and women successful.

When people only do their jobs because of the money; they usually lead poor lives.

Find a way to make money helping other people get what they want and you’ll have more business than you can handle.

If you are employed by someone else. The quickest way to your promotion is to follow the “ABH” rule — Always Be Helping!

If you are looking for one word to summarize how the very successful think; it is humility. A truly humble person asks questions, is of service, treats others with dignity, keeps his eye on the ball, has patience and is willing to do the work.

Above all, a humble person values himself and all other humans equally. He respects his own gifts and those of others. As a result he is open to the utmost this life has to offer.

Successful People are Lavish with Praise and Sparing with Criticism!

 (Image Credit: ThingsWeForget.BlogSpot.com)


Small people jump at the chance to criticize. They just love finding the flaws in other people and can’t wait to shine the spotlight on those defects. They dig putting others down. Of course there are successful people who are mean and nasty. But they aren’t successful because they are usually alone and miserable.

Successful People, the truly successful, do just the opposite. They seize every chance they get to praise others and always work hard to soften any negative review. This keeps alliances strong, builds teams and motivation. It excites others and brings out the best in them. Everyone wins.

Successful People Self-Correct!

(Image Credit: www.troutcpa.com)


Successful People continually ask themselves if their actions are bringing them closer to or further away from their goals!

If they find that they’re drifting, they correct their course and get back on track.

Less successful people rarely self-assess. As a result they tend to be unproductive!

Successful People Have Patience!

Worthwhile goals take time to achieve.

Successful People understand this and stay on track. Other people get frustrated when they don’t get instant results and they move on.

Sadly, the person who hops around like that is caught in perpetual start-up mode because he’s always beginning something new and never gets to see the fruits of his labour!

Successful People Ask The Right Questions!

(Image Credit: VibrantVocalPower.com)


You don’t have to be a genius to ask the right questions.

You just can’t be lazy. That’s because it takes work to get all the answers to the many questions you have to ask in order to really understand a given situation.

It’s much faster and easier to ask a few irrelevant questions and then steam ahead than to sit down and really ask all the important questions.

Let’s say you are thinking about a major decision. A quick approach might be to consider a few superficial questions that just reinforce your preconceived notions. But a “successful thinking” approach would include such tough questions as:

·         What do we really want?

·         Why do we want it?

·         What are all the alternatives?

·         What are the pros and cons to each approach?

·         When do we want to have this in place?

·         Why?

·         Is there another way to reach our goals without doing this or at a lower cost?

·         What happens if we do this?

·         What happens if we don’t do this?

·         What other questions have we forgotten to ask?

You can see which method is harder but leads to far better results. Successful folks aren’t afraid to ask the right questions and then do whatever it takes to get the answers.

Successful People Know They Don’t Know Everything!

(Image Credit: NotebookAboutQuotes.BlogSpot.com)


People who have a a noticeable success and hold on to it realize they don’t have all the answers. As a result, they are always on the lookout for new and better ways to do things.

Successful people surround themselves with people who offer different approaches. They have mentors and accountability partners. They are willing to consider ideas that conflict with their current way of doing things. If the new approach is better, they adapt. Their ego doesn’t get in the way of their intellect. When they are wrong, they don’t fight it or take it personally.

Contrast that with people who think they have it down. Their mind tells them they have life mastered. As a result they can’t learn anything. Worse, they don’t see it when the universe says “no”. They stick to their antiquated approach and usually get run over by reality.

Successful People Never Sell Themselves Short!


(Image Credit: https://kadampalife.org)


In order to lead, you need confidence in your own abilities. This is something that Julius Caesar never seemed to lack.

This is illustrated by one notable incident in the ancient Roman's life (involving pirates, of all things). In his account of Caesar's life, Plutarch writes that, as a young man, Julius Caesar was abducted by the pirates that swarmed the Mediterranean Sea.

Livius.org provides a translation of what happened next: "First, when the pirates demanded a ransom of twenty talents, Julius Caesar burst out laughing. They did not know, he said, who it was that they had captured, and he volunteered to pay fifty."

Julius Caesar went on to promise the pirates that he'd personally kill them once he was free. After he was ransomed, he raised a fleet, hunted them down, and did just that.

Successful People Don’t Get Comfortable!

(Image Courtesy: www.celebrationbarreview.com)


No matter how good things look, the best leaders never fail to anticipate the worst outcomes.

In his "Commentaries on the Gallic Wars," Julius Caesar writes: "The immortal gods are wont to allow those persons whom they wish to punish for their guilt sometimes a greater prosperity and longer impunity, in order that they may suffer the more severely from a reverse of circumstances."

Basically, if you're on a winning streak, watch out.

Julius Caesar would have done well to actually follow this advice himself. Instead, he allowed a conspiracy to boil under him once he became dictator, resulting in his famous assassination!!

Successful People Don't Cheat Themselves!

Even if you're a successful leader, you never want to get to the point where you start to buy your own nonsense.

In his chronicle of the Gallic Wars, Julius Caesar concludes that: "in most cases men willingly believe what they wish" when describing a tactical mistake on the part of his Gallic enemies.

The best leaders behave rationally and don't allow their feelings or preconceived notions to dominate their decision-making. Gut calls and instincts are important too, but the best leaders utilize both — not one or the other.
