Tapping into Hearts & Minds | Video
Unlock Your Greatest Assets and Watch What Happens
Video Series | Part 4
In the fourth and final video of this 4-part training series, I talk about the real game changer for us as business owners and leaders…our ability to capture the hearts and minds of the people around us.
Vision statements, policies, procedures and processes aren’t enough to move a company forward. Even a great product or service isn’t enough to make a business sustainable. They are missing the most important element for success…the human factor.
By themselves they have no life. They have no potential. It is the person or the people behind them that brings it to life and that drives the success.
Seeing the human dimension in our business is key. All of us have to influence, lead change and get buy-in in one way or another. Whether we are working for ourselves and getting clients or we’re leading large organizational change, being able to tap into our ability to connect, influence and get others on board matters.
Most companies intervene at the behavioral or procedural level, but the real power for change and transformation is in the hearts and minds of the people.
In my own business, when I’ve wanted to take a leap in growth or when things aren’t quite going the way I’d like, I have fallen into the trap of thinking I need more information, more training, more knowledge. As a result, I have spent time and money looking for the right training, paying to find the right formula or a better process. Yet, none of these has had the same impact as those times when I look within first. Not to my skills and competencies but to my state of mind.
I’ve seen entrepreneurs and executives of large companies fall into this same trap. They spend hundreds, thousands and even millions of dollars on processes, systems & technology and little, if any, on the human dimension of their business. Yet, what they miss, is the real leverage for improvement starts first with the people around them.
What’s fascinating to me now is, with a new understanding of human potential and performance, I can see that I was missing the boat. We are often barking up the wrong tree, looking in the wrong direction for answers.
When we want to inspire, influence, drive change or improve performance the solution starts first with the internal state of ourselves and the people around us.
Whether you’re just starting out and want to win clients or your leading a large organization, SEEING this and ACCESSING your innate ability to CONNECT and INSPIRE others is a huge game changer.
As we’ve explored in the previous three videos, it starts first with you. Seeing that where you “come from” – The Strength of Presence – really matters. Connecting authentically to others, The Undeniable Power of Connection, and letting insights and reflection, The Power of Pause, navigate your direction will change the game for you. And now finally, Tapping into Hearts & Minds will give you what you need to create change and up level the performance of your business or organization.
Listen to this short video as I share how one previous boss did this with me and as a result, I moved to a new state and started a whole new career.
“Most companies intervene at the behavioral or procedural level, but the real power for change and transformation is in the hearts and minds of the people. “
Great leaders are able to tap into new levels of potential, performance and creativity. They don’t rely on other’s formulas or effort alone; they are connected to their own innate nature and lead from their own knowing; a deeper intelligence. From that space, they are able to tap into the hearts and minds of the people around them and create sustainable change.
