(From the article): Spend five minutes in another person’s shoes.

 

For five minutes, focus on what your manager needs. Forget your job description: What does your manager hope to accomplish? What are her goals? What are her targets? What are the leadership issues she faces? What can you do to make her more successful?

 

Or focus on a customer. Forget what you provide: What does that customer hope or need to accomplish? What are his goals? What are his targets? What can you do to make him more successful?

 

Or focus on a particular employee. What are her career goals? What is she struggling with that impacts her performance? What can you do to make her job more fulfilling and rewarding?

 

The answers will surprise you. Maybe what your manager really needs is to rescue a high visibility project. Maybe what your customer really needs is to fight off a new competitor. Maybe what your employee really needs is an occasional opportunity to express creativity in her heavily process-based position.

 

Every day, spend a little time thinking about what someone else really needs and help them get it, even if the effort required falls outside your job description or typical focus or business as usual.

Verica Markovic's curator insight, July 3, 2013 5:16 PM

Le succès est une notion complexe dont les composantes sont multiples, variables et difficilement quantifiables tant sa définition est propre à chacun.

Néanmoins, on peut dégager quelques "vérités" et "mesures" qui nous indiquent qu'une personne a de la réussite (on parle ici, bien entendu, du succès professionnel).

Mais quels sont les raisons qui mènent au succès?

Elles sont, pour moi, de deux ordres:

- les raisons de l'ordre de la compétence, du savoir-faire, de l'intelligence (pas celle mesurée par le QI, mais celle de l'esprit, de sa vivacité et réactivité), ...

- les raisons de l'ordre du savoir être, du sens du partage et du "don" de soi qui permet à ceux qui savent s'en servir intelligemment, de rayonner sur les autres et ainsi contribuer à assoir et accroître le succès gagné par la force de leurs compétences et leurs efforts (la loi des 80/20: 80% de sueur, 20% de talent).

Je suis de ceux qui pensent que le succès n'a de véritable goût que si on le partage autour de soi.

C'est tout le sens de cet article.

Et vous? Qu'en pensez-vous?
