Power and influence over people is stuff from the past.
No good leader has ever gained power and influence over their hearts and minds (particularly their hearts).
Top-down bosses are killing squash men. The more customers are efficient, the fewer they continue. Since the industrial era, all they need is self-decision, feedback, data, and personal growth.
This means managers must learn to lead, get out of work and create a humane atmosphere for individual success.
Four ways to do this are here.
Share histories to create memorable emotional connections
It’s no secret that people are social creatures. Our brains are designed to communicate with what we do and anyone with whom we associate, and stories are the way we construct these relationships. Stories that are deeply emotional and intimate are much more convincing.
The strength of the storytelling to build a company from the start is key to entrepreneurship and the importance of priority telling. Says Dan Roberts, CEO & co-founder of Scout Alarm. The research has shown how these kinds of stories increase the development of oxytocin in our own brains— the hormone that makes us bond with others.
Motivate others by appreciation
The organizations with the highest levels of commitment in Gallup’s comprehensive study use appreciation as a powerful weapon to get their dedication. This is such a strong engine. Essentially, they suggest that praise be offered once a week. Truth and personality are the most creative it can become. That’s the Platinum Rule. Treat others as they desire, to treat them in the manner that they want to be handled. That is the common Golden Rule.
