Leadership Mints Series Sampler Sparking the Go-Getter in You

How can the Go-Getter in you get even better? Become  Go-Giver.

In their book The Go Giver, authors Bob Burg and John David Mann “bring new relevance to the old proverb:  Give and you shall receive (and) the most valuable asset you have to give others is you. “

To help you in transforming yourself into more of a Go-Giver, the authors cite these five initiatives: The Law of Influence. The Law of Receptivity. The Law of Authenticity. The Law of Value.  And the Law of Compensation.  Here’s how they define each of those laws:

INFLUENCE:
Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first.”

RECEPTIVITY:
“The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.”

AUTHENTICITY:
“The most valuable give you have to offer is yourself.”

VALUE:  
“Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.

COMPENSATION:
Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.”

        Her staff seemed perplexed if not confused.

       The team leader then passed out a bowl of unshelled nuts to each of her seven team members. Then she distributed a nutcracker –the metal vice-like hand tool—to each staff member.

      The staff looked quizzically to each other. They wondered if their team leader had cracked under all the pressure.

     But then the leader led by example. She began cracking the whole nuts. There were almonds, brazil nuts, hazlenuts, pecans and walnuts. And with all that nut-cracking, the staff meeting room erupted into a cacophony of snaps, crackles and pops. Continue reading “Stirring Your Leadership With Half & Half”
