Passion is another vital part of being a leader. But it’s not always about your passion it’s about finding out what those around you are passionate about!
Without passion, they’ll never succeed.
Here are some tips to help you find out what others are passionate about.
Tip One: Take a second and look around you, what do you see? Do you see a beautiful office filled with pictures of your family? Do you see happy co-workers mingling having a good time working hard and unison for one common goal? Do you see absolutely beautiful scenery out of a window?
Keep looking until you find something it strikes happiness inside of you. Once you are in the right mood now it’s time to go find out what others are passionate about.
Tip Two: stand up, go for a walk down to the break room. On your way to the break room say hi to everyone you meet or see.
Pick one person or you don’t normally talk to and ask them how their day is going. Here’s the key, listen to what they have to say, and then respond back with one question about the information they just told you.
Tip Three: Repeat Step 2 at least 6 times a day. You might be asking why in the world am I going to get up and go for a quick walk 6 times a day. There’s a couple reasons for that.
The first reason is that by getting up and moving it creates a better mental state for you to be in and get your blood flowing to your brain.
Second, it’s going to allow you the ability to be seen more as a leader. As you start talking to everybody they’re not going to be afraid to come to you when they have a problem.
What you’re going to see is after doing this for 3 or 4 days or a week or two weeks people are going to start opening up more to you as you go for your walks.
Pretty soon you’re going to know that Dwayne has four kids and that his daughter is on the student council and his son is awesome at baseball and he’s building a go-kart for another son and he has another daughter that absolutely loves basketball.
Guess what you just found out about Dwayne’s passions or his family. You might also find out that Marsha’s passion is video editing, and Joe loves numbers.
The point is that everybody has a passion and if you can figure out a way to connect with that passion as a leader the people around you or respect you so much more.
