Six ways to Make People Like You

Leadership is influence, nothing more or less.

If you peel the onion of influence..

1 “weapon of influence” is likability. 

And since leaders lead people, being likable is a very important quality. 

As such, I just re–read Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People” which is absolute gold.

So in todays lesson, I wanted to provide 6 simple yet very effective ways you intentionally become likable which will make you a better leader.

Six ways to Make People Like You

  1. Become genuinely interested in other people.
  2. Smile.
  3. Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.
  4. Be a good listener. …
  5. Talk in terms of the other person’s interests.
  6. Make the other person feel important – and do it sincerely.

Expect far more of yourself than anyone else ever will.

Very simple, but very effective.

With that mentality, you will transform into being the hardest worker in the room.

And when you’re the hardest worker in the room..

People will be PULLED, not PUSHED to follow you.

This is key.

Very simple, but very effective in growing your leadership.

Nothing more or less in the words of NY Times Best Selling Author John Maxwell.

Emotions are a powerful tool. 150 150 Bryce Henson

Emotions are a powerful tool.

In leading yourself, realize that emotions are a powerful tool.

Unfortunately, many people let their emotions take control and why they get a bad rap in leadership (rightfully so).

But as a leader, you have to do the opposite.

Embrace your emotions as that what makes you human. 

Use them as a tool for growth. 

As you must be in control, not the reverse.

To illustrate this, I will leave you with insights from Tim Grover, former personal trainer to Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant and author of “Relentless”.

In the book, he cites that both players used to “unleash 48 minutes of controlled rage at their opponents”.

The 2 words are “control” and “rage”.

If harnessed, properly channeled emotions can be a superpower. 

Leadership is about solving problems 150 150 Bryce Henson

Leadership is about solving problems

Candidly, I have to remind myself of this on the tough days which many times are more often than the lighter ones.

Leadership at its core is about solving problems.

The bigger problems you can solve, the better leader you will become.

And consequently, the more money income you will receive. 

Thus, do not complain or shy away from problems.

Realize the value of leadership is having problems to solve.

Embrace them, solve them, and level up your leadership.

Leading from the front 150 150 Bryce Henson

Leading from the front

Leading from the front.

As a leader, it’s essential you develop delegation skills. Ultimately, you are orchestrating your team’s performance so you need to have a higher-level perspective of the entire mission. This skill will aid you in ensuring better execution for the benefit of your team, clients, and following.

Although the dichotomy of leadership is that you also must never lose the willingness to lead from the front.

As there are many times you must roll up your sleeves and do the dirty work when needed. This too will give you the needed ground-level perspective and also garnish support from your team.

In summation, delegate early and often. But keep in mind that you should never ask anyone to do something you wouldn’t be willing to do yourself. This is effective leadership.

“There are no bad teams, only bad leaders

“There are no bad teams, only bad leaders.” – Jocko Willink

This is a tough pill to swallow for any young leader, but it’s the truth.

The leader’s attitude sets the tone for the entire team.  The leader drives performance – or doesn’t. 

This applies not just to the most senior leader of an overall team, but to the junior leaders of teams within the team.

As leadership is needed at every level up and down the chain if an organization is to be successful.

Monday Mindset – Fit Body’s solution to help combat extreme poverty in the war-torn Ukraine

Happy Mindset Monday! 🙌

Our franchise-wide Spring Challenge kicks off today with thousands of men and women around North America taking a massive step towards their fitness goals.

This inspires me deeply and I hope it does the same for you! 👊

As getting healthy and fit is one of the most selfish and selfless things you can do. 

Yes, selfish because it helps you. Although it is also incredibly selfless as when you get better, you make everyone around you better.

And if that wasn’t enough, our global Fit Body clients are also answering the call to help combat extreme poverty in Ukraine while getting fit in the process. 

As sadly, extreme poverty is still a reality we face even in our modern-day. 

And the unprovoked actions taken by Russia’s Vladimir Putin against the people of Ukraine have made the problem in this region exponentially worse.

Thus, with our Fit Body client’s help, we are answering the call. 🤙

Every time our members work out at a session and also check in on Facebook or Instagram through the months of April-June, each of our global locations will donate to ChildFund.org to help the Ukrainian relief effort. 

This is selflessness in its highest forms. ❤️

“Early to Bed, Early to Rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” 150 150 Bryce Henson

“Early to Bed, Early to Rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”

I read this quote by Benjamin Franklin in the fall of 2003. It stuck with me deep in my subconscious but I admittedly I didn’t take action until 2008.

Although single-handedly, it’s made me a better leader of myself primarily, which is 70% of leadership

And then consequently a better leader of others as a ripple effect.

“Early to Bed, Early to Rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”

Simple, not easy as it requires self-discipline. But I highly recommend following its guidance for the betterment of yourself and your team as the 3 promises have held true for me and will for you.
