STOP looking for passion!

A CEO recently told me how loyalty is the most important thing she looked for in her staff and employees.

I had to stop her. "The only meaningful and consistent loyalty you can count on is from your dog (and you even have to have an understanding with your dog)," I said. "If that's the main thing you're counting on with your staff, not only are you running in the wrong direction... you're sprinting in the wrong direction enthusiastically."

You can walk around your office claiming to have a loyal staff, and maybe you do. But does everybody on your team agree with and understand the direction the company is going in? If they don't feel the same sense of agreement and understanding, you're going to be disappointed with your results.

If your employees don't agree with the direction you've proposed, you're going to have a lot of unproductive employees.

Agreement and understanding leads to commitment, which leads to passion. If your employees are committed to the goals you set, their job will take on a new life.

Sometimes when I would ask my employees if they had done what I asked them to do, they would respond saying they hadn't. Since I learned this; however, I now make sure I ask my employees if they're in agreement with my task and understand its significance to the success of the company.

Having an agreement and understanding leads to commitment, which leads to passion.

If you want extraordinary results in service, products, and profit, follow those guidelines.

Excerpt from Living On Purpose (available now):

I started to think about my journey to extraordinary achievement like a tree. The roots are my purpose, in that they help me stay anchored. Commitment is the trunk of the tree, growing little by little every day as it stretches skyward toward the sun. The branches that grow off that trunk represent my passion, and the fruit or leaves are traits like creativity, clarity, focus, determination, diligence, and thoughtfulness that are ignited by my passion.

I had been chasing passion and, to some degree, coming up empty. Now I knew I’d been chasing the wrong thing. I had to begin pursuing purpose and passion would follow.

If you're in a leadership role in the locker room, your office, or at home, take a look at your teammates, your employees, or your family and ask yourself if you have an agreement and understanding with them. Without understanding and agreement, you're not going to be committed. And without commitment, you won't have passion.

Does loyalty count? Of course it does. But is that person in agreement with you? Don't seek out loyalty, seek out the stuff that leads to loyalty. Loyalty is created by having an understanding and agreement with people.

The same CEO told me that she was building a culture. Once again, wrong. You don't build a culture, you create a culture through understanding and agreement.

  • In today’s digital age, navigating the online landscape can sometimes feel like trekking through a treacherous wilderness. Lately, I found myself ensnared in a web of deceit spun by a group of frvudsters, leaving me feeling helpless and devastated. However, amidst the chaos, I stumbled upon a beacon of hope – COINS RECOVERY WORLDWIDE a recovery agency that would become my saving grace.
    From the moment I reached out to them, their team exuded professionalism and empathy. They listened attentively as I recounted my harrowing ordeal, offering reassurance and guidance every step of the way. It took us only 18 hours to recover my entire pension which i initially lost.
    their impact extended far beyond mere financial restitution. In the midst of despair, they provided a beacon of light, restoring my faith in humanity and reaffirming that goodness still exists in this digital wilderness. Their unwavering dedication to their clients is nothing short of commendable, and I am eternally grateful for their invaluable assistance. Just as i promised, i will always give reviews about them if i see a chance to, just incase theres anyone who is going through such situation like i did, below is there lines of communication.
