Make the First Move

Adopt an outward mindset even when others don’t. Rather than complain, we can make the move we are waiting for the other person to make—we can act the way we want the other person to act. 

While we think this might lead us to be taken advantage of, it is not a “soft” thing to do—in fact, it’s a hard behavior that requires courage. Putting others’ interests first when we aren’t sure others are doing the same is a scary move.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME BOOK

The outward mindset is a way of looking at the world. It involves seeing beyond yourself and making others feel valued. An outward mindset focuses on others, on what is important to all stakeholders: our employees, customers, manager, family members.

An inward mindset is focused on self-benefit and self-concern—our individual self-interest or if we are operating in a larger organization, our individual team, or our division.

The framework for working with the Outward Mindset goes by the acronym SAM—See others, Adjust efforts and Measure impact.
