Today is one of our rare episodes that Jody and I are in the same room, in person. We just wrapped up the Creating Magic Mastermind. It is amazing what can come out of a concentrated time when people who are passionate and want to grow and learn come together. Two big themes emerged over the mastermind: Strategy and everyone matters, and should know they matter.
The strategy doesn’t have to be complicated. When you boil it down, you need to ask yourself how you will be different from your competitors so that people want to work with you. It’s not about being flashy. It is about being different. Are you trustworthy? Do you show up and do your job accurately and with integrity? It isn’t about your job; it is about who you are. That is what makes people want to work with you.
We were surprised to have Reggie Williams drop in and join us for part of the mastermind. Reggie always reminds me that it is important to really look out for everyone and not back down from what you know is right. There is power in being able to give people an answer and not have to say “I’ll think about it.” It is follow through on what matters that communicates to others that they matter. If you want to be great, everything matters. If you want to be good, you can let some things slide. Either way, you have to make the call and follow through.
