One of the keys to success is surrounding yourself with great people. Great people equate to great teams. The better your teammates, the better your team.
When evaluating teamwork it’s important to ask yourself two things:
- What value do you bring as an individual to all the teams you work with?
- Within the teams you work with, who brings great value that you can learn from?
- Write down a list of people you are involved with
- Write down what you can do to be the best teammate as possible
- Write down the things you can do better
There are three key stages to gain influence which ultimately gives you a platform to go out and change the world for the better.
Stage one: a relationship is formed
Stage two: the relationship turns into a friendship
Stage three: trust is earned
When trust is earned, that’s when you have influence. People of influence lead by permission instead of position. A leader isn’t defined by what they get, it’s defined by the number of lives they impact for the better, and influence is critical for doing so.
- Make a written list of the areas of your life. Rate your level of influence for each area using a scale from 1-10, with 10 being the highest.
- For each area, write down whether your influence is by permission or position.
The more influence you have, the more successful you will be.
