“If there is any one secret of success,
it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view
and see things from his angle as well as your own.”
-Henry Ford, founder of Ford Motor Company
“If you want to be happy, be grateful.”
– David Steint-Rast, monk and interfaith scholar
You are likely familiar with the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would like others to do unto you.” Truly effective leaders follow what has become known as the Platinum Rule: “Treat others as they wish to be treated.” Beyond empathetic listening, an understanding of others is a key component of making a lasting connection and motivating those that you lead. People are not created “one size fits all.” I think of attunement as being aware of differences between another and myself rather than assuming that others are the same as I am – seeing situations exactly the same and having the same reactions. Being attuned means being in tune with another person which results from being both more aware and more connected at the same time. But, as a leader, do you know what motivates the people you lead (and whether it is the same or different from what motivates you)?
