IBGR - RESULTS Radio Network. Everything a business owner needs to start, grow or exit a business. Come grow with us.
Altruism is a fascinating way of engaging with people in our everyday interactions. To be rewarded for helping others, is taboo for many, yet demanded for self growth as a human need, want and desire for anyone in a relationship, social or business environment.
What is the point many ask? Simple.. An amazing saying comes to mind with this.
One of the most basic human desires is to have love and appreciation expressed to us. A stunning catch phrase when it comes to recognition that I have heard many motivational speakers use is: “Recognition, babies cry for it, grown men die for it.”
Show Objectives - The Why
To encourage, engage and excite people, is to honour them for their actions and challenge their beliefs in themselves. John Maxwell says that Great Leaders build leaders.
Compassion is the key to helping people upgrade their thinking, their lives, their lifestyles and ability to reward themselves through positive upliftment.
So how would helping others boost our business, networks, client base, products and services? Easily understood from my point of view if we look at African Principles of engagement.
Key Issues - Owner Perspective
What You Need to Know - The What
Any business, no matter what stage you are at, always strives for success in different ways. From healthy lifestyles, improved sales, Legacy building, increased productivity, welcoming work environments, loyal team members, engaged clients and profit as the main imperative.
What is the impact on your health, wellbeing, ability to live a life of intention, impact lives and create significance?
So where exactly does knowledge sharing and resources actually play a role within your environment?
You retain and develop talent. You have access to a Core team that YOU have developed who are in line with your own Values and you KNOW what type of person you can depend on.
Dependability on your team, is the greatest way to guarantee the success of your business.
What You Need to Do - The How
Use the 3 R concept. Recognise, Reward, Respect.
Recognise the efforts that people make to accomplish what they have do, to the best of their ability. If they fail or battle to complete anything successfully, then we need to understand, empathise and use that as an opportunity to guide and support them by asking questions. Questions meant to intentionally add value and be that person they can depend on.
Reward through words of confirmation, encouragement and visual awards. The greatest reward you will have, is having a team you can always depend on. Clients who will seek you first as the preferred supplier and family who feel “Seen”.
Respect the journey of every person as the individual that they are. Know what their vision is, how they wish to grow and where they see themselves.
