The Entrepreneurial Stories Series Launch!

The Entrepreneurial Stories Series

Today I am soooo excited to announce the launch of my Entrepreneurial Stories Series on LinkedIn!

This has been a labour of love where I enjoyed chatted with lots of entrepreneurs who are showing so much grit as they grind and grow in their respective professions.

I’m inviting you to click on this link: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/introducing-rick-altman-host-presentation-summit-gale-e-weithers to participate in Chapter 1 where we chat with Rick Altman, host of the Presentation Summit and who can be found at www.betterpresenting.com.

Rick is funny, vastly knowledgeable about all things involving presentation skills and best of all loves to chat! Hope you enjoy this conversation as much I did. Stay tuned for Chapter 2 which comes out next week Wednesday.

HOW TO MAKE MONDAY MAGIC: TELL YOUR STORY!

“Once upon a time, in a land far away, there lived a princess in a grand palace surrounded by wicked witches and wizards.

The King, an astute businessman with the Queen always by his side, feared for his daughter’s safety. After some thought he instructed the kingdom’s advisors to set up companies which would employ the witches and wizards, allowing them to creatively channel their magic into doing work that would benefit the kingdom.

At first all went well, but the witches and wizards found the work boring and tedious. Their department heads referred to them as magical minions, failed to train, motivate or empower them to make decisions, and mainly left them to their own devices.

HOW TO MAKE MONDAY MAGIC: Do NOT judge!

Judging is easy.

Truly understanding why someone did something (that you would never ever do) is way harder.

It took me a long time to get to the place where I finally understood that people aren’t deliberately dumb or stupid when they make a decision I deem to be dumb or stupid.

I had to acknowledge that my judgement was a personal opinion based on a personal perception of a situation for which I usually did not have all of the background details.

All of us are simply human, doing the best we can, as best we can.

BOTTOM LINE:

👉🏽 Don’t judge people for the choices they made when you don’t know the options they had to choose from.

👉🏽 Ask questions.

👉🏽 Listen louder.

👉🏽 Show #empathy.

👉🏽 Communicate and respond genuinely.

👉🏽 Support your people and lead them like a rockstar.

👉🏽 Be a good human.
