Get the Cooperation of Others

To build a high-performance team, you need to empower people.

Learning how to motivate and inspire them will make them want to work with you. Knowing how to enlist the knowledge, energy, and resources of others will enable you to accomplish more.

Key People to Empower

There are three types of people you need to empower regularly:

  1. The people closest to you: your spouse, children, family, and friends.
  2. Your work relationships: your staff, coworkers, peers colleagues, and your boss.
  3. The people you interact with in your day-to-day life: customers, suppliers, bankers, restaurants, airplanes.

Your ability to get people to help you will make you more effective.

How to empower others

  • Always be positive: Avoid doing anything that might take power from those around you or reduces their energy and enthusiasm.
  • Satisfy the need of others. Determine the things you can do to boost their self-esteem - their sense of being important, valuable and worthwhile.
  • Express appreciation. It is a simple way to make another person feel good about himself.

Failure to execute

We tend to confuse activity with accomplishment: we attend endless meetings and make plans, but at the end of the day, no one does the job and gets the results required.

“Failure to execute” is among the biggest problems in organizations today.
