Being Able to Command Doesn’t Mean You Have to Be the Boss
Have you been to a restaurant or something where the manager just freaks out to the employee for not doing something according to how the manager wants it to go?
Or have you ever seen a housewife abuse her maid for no apparent logical reason?
You don’t get things done well by treating people like animals.
Even though media and TV try to let you believe that all humans are like animals, this is not the reality. Humans are able to think about situations and often enough come to rational solutions how to handle them.
So why is it that some people have a ton of followers and some people can’t even get anything done through their friends?
A lot of the time it’s just defined as an X-factor, someone just has it or not. But I believe you can learn anything.
A few utilities one can keep in mind when you want to get something done through someone else:
• Have good manners, this consists of communicating in a clear and understanding way and showing that the other person has an importance.
• Have a reason to actually need the person to do it, and reflect that reason to him so he knows why.
• Make sure the command has an ethically and morally correct action; else you are risking the person’s perception of right and wrong.
• Be confident and show it, you must really have your intention on the command. You WANT it done. Not in a forceful way, but in a very strong confidence.
These are actually things you have to just apply to really see how it works; just reading it on my blog and knowing it won’t actually get you anywhere.
As I have pointed out several times, application of the actual learned theory is what makes you capable in this business world today.
In my business administration degree I had communication drills; this actually makes you able to confront people better. It’s just continually training your leadership and ability to get things done.
This has all the knowledge you need to know about communication, what does it consist of and how do you use it correctly?
My favorite course was the sales training, you get about 26 drills that you keep doing until YOU feel comfortable about it. The other communication courses were a lot of fun too, you get to really connect with the other students this way also.
Every entrepreneur has a little insecurity about starting out and getting to command all these people, it takes some responsibility and confront which this training can really boost for you.
Because When You Flip a Coin in Your Career, You Often Find Yourself on the Ground Looking – for Both
Isn’t it just frustrating when you don’t know what to do? What do you base your decisions on? Money? Family? Pleasure? And after looking back, was it the right thing to base your decision off on? In life you can find yourself looking at some major decisions, attaining a college degree, buying a house, walking up to that girl you like…
So how do we decide on these things? Usually friends or family who ‘know all about it’ enlighten us on these decisions, but who says they made the right decision in the first place?
Now I’m not saying to be a rebel and go against everything others say, my mom still tells me what I should bring with me when I go on a date. (Awkward cough.)
– I’m just saying that with all this data in life, you should be able to get the valuable data from it and then decide on your OWN what the right decision is. Kind of like a filter.
If the question “HOW?!” just popped in your head, don’t worry. I’ll explain.
Personal and career development is something that takes some people a lifetime to figure out, the biggest question often being “Who am I?”. Some are not even real to themselves. They have no direction in life, and just don’t know what to do!
In my previous blog I talked a little about leadership, every person being one in one form or another. It is important that people know this.
– When they say “I can’t be a leader.”, they are wrong because they are already one!
Now when you make a decision by yourself, you must have some code that you reason with to make it seem logical. You have it right this moment, the question is, is it an ethical one? Is it right?
Even as a CEO, you have your business administration degree, all this knowledge, but who is benefitting from your decisions? Just you? Or the whole company?
I have learned in one of the earlier and easiest but very beneficial courses, a logical code to think with that I can follow in making almost any decision in life and business. It looks at all aspects and doesn’t leave anything out, you truly get to see what is best for the most number of aspects.
The courses at the Hubbard College are all unique in their own way, and this is just another of my experiences with them.
Defining Leadership and Creating Smart & Efficient Leaders at the Hubbard College
Leadership is often confused to be some amazing natural trait someone is born with, this is not true however. All leadership consists of is the ability to give and enforce orders that work towards visible and positive accomplishment.
Everyone is a leader in its basic form. When you decide you want to get some food, you give your body an order to go and get some, and you keep persisting on it until you get that delicious food!
When you look at a broader picture, you decide you want to sell 20 books today and you know out of experience you can sell 9 books a day. This leaves you 11 books unsold! You then order 2 of your sales employees to sell 6 each today. Problem solved.
Now we look at a BIG picture. You are the CEO of a company and people look to you for answers to all their problems, you are a leader in the sense that you can influence them. But are you truly showing leadership?
– Leadership is not cleaning up people’s mess. It’s giving them the right orders to do it themselves.
I can guarantee you if you’re running a business, you have done this – or are still doing it today.
I realized I’ve done this numerous times, and when I finished my Effective Leadership course (included standard in the Associate degree) I completely found new ways to be a leader and an executive.
I had an even better realization after I finished the Policy course and learned about policies. This makes you able to stop problems from recurring, it’s like writing a manual that people can go to each time they have a question.
I loved it, and still do.
