Hey Jody, what if…

originality and criticism
The trap when pursuing originality is quitting as you pass through the storm of criticism.

Hey Jody, what if you helped me build a jeff noel genius network?

A warrior network.

Love the warrior, hate the war.

What war?

The war against fear and excuses. The war against normal, the herd mentality – if everyone’s doing it, it has to be okay.

Made for people who want to rethink everything.

Perfect for people who have great priorities but know they need to modify their priorities order.

The best catalyst for people who are 110% committed to transforming themselves.

That was a little creative, dreaming riff. Morning exercises if you will.

Real networking starts here

Focus on excellence like you mean it.

 

Networking isn’t a right like most people believe.

Real networking is a barter system.

If you hope to get something from someone, be prepared to give first.

Make deposits.

First.

Almost to a fault, people who connect with me want something without any giving.

The point is this: We are creatures of habit. Givers advance in their organizations, and in life.

If you aren’t a giver first with me, you aren’t a giver first with your organization either.

You really don’t need anything from me, you just need to be a giver.

Then sit back and reap what you sow.

i know right?

Who knew?

Usually 50% At Best

Trust. Distrust.

Like.  Dislike.

Do you trust your leader?  Do you like your leader?

Take President Barack Obama, or any President for that matter.  Usually, at best, a President receives between 50-60% of the popular vote.  More or less half. Stay with me here.

What this means is the other half don’t like and don’t trust the President, relatively speaking.

And it’s the same in large organizations and small businesses. Seriously, it is.

Why do we try so hard to be liked, when in reality, the best we can ever hope for is about half.

Take Simon Cowell, from American Idol (yes, many of you hate Simon and the show), while many people do not like him, everyone trusts that he will tell the truth.

And the reason we know Simon will always tell the truth, is because he always does. Sounds simple, but Simon is consistent to a fault. He’s honest even if it’s “bad news”.

And yet, he’s crystal clear about his mission – select the very best singer. Period. Determine the “Gold Medal” winner. Select the next American Idol.

Most don’t like him. Most absolutely trust him.

If trust is the most important leadership characteristic, who gives a flip about being liked?
