Your attitude – how you feel and treat others – plays a VERY big role in how you are perceived by clients, business partners and vendors. Don’t be like this young lady and lock yourself in the bathroom.
What is the right attitude? It’s pure unadulterated joy and self-confidence. It’s believing in yourself while at the same time being selfless. It’s about living a life of servicing others. It’s about waking up every morning raring to face the day.
One book that should be on everyone’s reading list is Enchantment by Guy Kawasaki. You can read my review at My Review of the book Enchantment.
This book covers every aspect of human to human interaction. It’s a roadmap for dealing with people every day. Frankly, it is a very important book.
Case in point – to become likeable you need to create crow’s feet – the tiny lines that appear when you smile very broadly. And to be trust-worthy, you have to first trust others. Default to “Yes” – always say that whenever you can.
Interestingly, I once asked at a meeting how to create more Linkedin recommendations. They said “Ask for them.” Unfortunately, that’s the wrong answer. The way to get Linkedin recommendations is to GIVE Linkedin recommendations. The concept is “Give to Get.”
The best way to learn the concepts in Enchantment is to review this wonderful infographic.
