They Will Find The Truth Eventually

They Will Find The Truth Eventually

Has your performance been up to par lately? Are you perfect in what you do? Is everything going exactly right in your professional life? Chances are your own limitations ensure that things definitely are not going perfectly. We must remind ourselves that no one is perfect. In fact, it is our mistakes that actually leads us to success. It’s when we admit our limitations and mistakes that we build stronger relationships because we become more believable.

 

Here is a true story that reveals the importance of admitting your flaws…

 

In the mid-1980’s researchers at Cleveland State University made a startling discovery.

They conducted an experiment by creating two fictitious job candidates, David and John. The candidates had identical resumes and letters of reference. The only difference was that John’s letter included the sentence, “Sometimes John can be difficult to get along with.” Researchers showed the resumes to a number of personnel directors. Which candidate did the personnel directors overwhelmingly prefer? Difficult to get along with John.

The researchers concluded that the criticism of John made praise of John more believable. Admitting John’s limitations actually helped to sell John. Admitting flaws give us more credibility……a key to gaining the trust of others.

 

Always be willing to take responsibility for your own actions and limitations. Your flaws are part of who you are, so why cover them up. By admitting our shortfalls we become much more believable and authentic. It draws others to your genuine self and makes them feel comfortable.

 

We have nothing but the Truth…

Are You Mentally Challenged?

Are You Mentally Challenged?

So I was at a seminar last week and this guy was attempting to educate those in attendance on the changes that are happening in the accounting world. From the word go nothing was going right for him. First his mic stopped working, then his computer decided to update on its own which left him no option but to go to plan B. Unfortunately he wasn’t prepared and

it all crashed and burned.

 

If this hasn’t happened to you yet it’s probably a good idea to be prepared just in case. Regardless of the situation. Whether you are at the table trying to close a big deal, seeking a promotion or presenting in front of a group at some point things are going to go sideways. You better be mentally prepared to handle it.

 

When you prepare for any competition there is a physical and mental component to it. Even though we have been taught the importance of the mental prepartion we somehow believe that if we just practice the presentation (the physical side) over and over again confidence alone will cover the necessary mental prep. Boy this sure didn’t work for the poor guy at the seminar?

 

Are you prepared to make in game adjustments? As the old addage goes “cooler heads will prevail”. What I am talking about here is having a routine or sytem in place that will automatically calm your nerves to assess the situation and allow your mind to work under stress and in pressure situations.

 

I can’t control the results, but I can control how I respond to them!

 

The only way to control this response is to have a mental routine that will allow yourself to stay in the present moment and deliver in any situation. It will slow down the thinking process, but will not interrupt your rhythm. Mental focus creates a relaxed atmosphere during times of stress promoting a positive thought process. It will keep you from pushing harder when you feel or recognize a problem or feel resistance.

 

No matter what level of intensity you perform best, being locked in on the present moment will allow you to deliver with precision. Nobody knows YOU better than YOU! Create a routine that YOU believe in and are committed to.

 

Together, Physical and Mental Preparedness are the breeding ground for confidence. Are you doing everything within your control to increase your confidence?

It’s Nothing Personal…

It’s Nothing Personal…

It’s never a good idea to hire someone to just be part of your team. The preference is to have those who decide to join take personal ownership in contributing to and creating an electric environment. This “Living Culture”, as I call it, transends beyond the time clock as a breathing entity that is always evolving day to day, week to week, year to year. It creates a constant mindset focused on living up to a set of principles on and off the job.

 

The foundation of this Living Culture comes from what is expected of and by all members. All are expected to live up to a set of standards regardless of position. It’s crucial that the Standards consist of actionable items that can be done, as opposed to a list things we can’t do. Too many people waste time trying to figure out if the cup is half full or half empty. We just simply say fill it up everyday and success will happen. At the end of the day our Standards will be the foundation that the Living Culture will be built upon allowing it to breathe.

 

The key to keeping the culture alive is holding everyone accountable to the Standards. A Living Culture only survives when the group is fully aware of what is expected. You must always encourage what is allowed and correct what is not. Remember, correcting is only reminding the people that there are standards and expectations to live up to. It will never become personal because that is just the way we do things.

 

Once the Living Culture is established accountability comes from all levels and heirarchy becomes an afterthought. Before you know it an atmosphere is created that breeds it’s members to look out for one another. You know its happening when you see team members finding solutions before management even finds it on the P & L or hears about it from a client. When this thing called peer leadership becomes the norm it is a tell-tale sign that a Living Culture exists and is thriving.

 

The mantra of a Living Culture says that the whole is bigger than each individual and it will last for a lifetime as long as everyone understands that it takes me for it to continue to breathe.

 

And it’s OK if someone chooses that it no longer fits them. Just make sure that you show them the door and wish them well because it’s nothing persona

 
 

Be Awesome!
