I recently read an article from Dave Kerpen, CEO from Likeable Local in New York City. He is a best selling author and keynote speaker around the concept of maximizing your self-worth in both business and life.
His basic premise is that if you are likeable, then it will help you in your job, business, & relationships. He mentions that while the concepts are very simple in nature, they seem to often be forgotten in the daily grind and stress of everyday life.
Here are his Eleven (11) Most Important Principles to Becoming a Better Leader/Person:
1. Be A Good Listener
2. Be A Good Storyteller
3. Be Authentic
4. Be Transparent
5. Be a Team Player
6. Be Responsive
7. Be Adaptable
8. Be Passionate
9. Encourage Surprise and Delight
10. Keep It Simple
11. Be Grateful
If everyone could master these simple concepts, the world we live in would be a much more productive, harmonious, and overall happier place!
That’s the bottomline…
“Change…Part Nature…Part Opportunity”
