Succeed in transformation
Motivating teenagers to take responsibility, do their homework, and maybe even clean up their room is quite straightforward. Actually, you can even take control in the meeting room to get the results you want and have your ideas approved.
If you are curious about how, here is a podcast (in danish) which will improve your understanding of your surroundings, of yourself, and of your role in your interaction with others. Listen along – it only takes 30 minutes, and you can easily clean up the kitchen or do the laundry while listening.
Friendliness is the most valuable currency in 2021
This is true around clients and colleagues alike, and not least in the digital realm.
As human interaction is gradually replaced by digital services, we lose such things as eye contact, smiles, and the cheerful remarks across the meeting table. These are all indicators of cohesion, which help us in feeling part of the herd. And we humans need to belong.
This is why we have to make a conscious, and careful, effort to add elements of friendliness to our project plans, virtual meetings, emails, Slack chats, etc. Because we cannot do without it in our everyday lives. And because we are much better versions of ourselves when in a friendly, accommodating environment.
Success is far from a coincidence
Rule no. 1 is that a meeting must never result in someone losing. If that happens, you can expect resistance – maybe even at a later occasion, when you need it the least.
Actually, it is surprising how little it matters to have good, rational arguments, when you need to turn resistance into support in the meeting room. The key is to create a feeling of comfort. When we are comfortable, we become more focused on possible gains, and in turn contribute actively to innovation and change.
