  • 🗞 Self Confidence Solves ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ➡️@ROIOverload ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ➡️https://bit.ly/2TAUepS

    If you could enhance a single trait about yourself with the objective of improving your success, your happiness and your effectiveness, what would it be?

    Your intelligence?

    Your empathy?

    Your height?

    99% of the time, you’d get the best results by enhancing your confidence.

    In other words, all those self-help books that tell you to take supplements to make yourself smarter, to work out more, are completely missing the root cause.

    With self-confidence, you can genuinely accomplish anything, transform into a more confident, social and happy version of yourself.

    To begin that confidence transformation…

    • Find a passion – spend time developing yourself in areas that you feel strongly about
    • Don’t try to impress people – be yourself
    • Don’t be aggressive
    • But try to be physically capable should it ever come down to a confrontation!
    • Use thought challenging to remove your anxieties and worries
    • Use hypothesis testing and practice facing your fears to desensitize yourself to the worst-case scenarios
    • Be friendly, generous and kind to appear more social!
    • Look after your health and eat a balanced nutritious diet
    • Dress well
    • Meditate
    • Surround yourself with positive people
    • Find the right role models
    • Act as you wish to become

    Don’t expect to be overflowing with confidence overnight. This is a comprehensive and profound transformation.

    But it is the most important thing you will ever do.

  • 🗞 Double Down On Employee Training ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ➡️@ROIOverload ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ➡️https://bit.ly/2NmkjaK

    If you’re the one in charge of training new employees at the workplace, you have a major impact on their impression of the organization as a whole. If your training is effective, and you’re there to assist as they need it, they’ll see the company as helpful and a good place to work. But, if you don’t provide them with the help they need, they aren’t likely to build a positive relationship with the company. Here are a few things to keep in mind while training a new employee.

    Focus on Building Strengths

    • As you work with a new hire, be on the lookout for areas where they excel and encourage them to build on their expertise. Not only will this encourage them to do a good job now, it will also set them up to get a promotion for a job that suits their skill sets in the future.
    • In addition, ask them if they have any other strengths that they feel could help them get the job done. They may be able to help out the company in ways that you hadn’t thought of beforehand.

    Find Resources Online

    • There are a number of different learning programs available on the internet that are well-suited to many different companies and organizations. These courses typically include written instructions and instructional videos, as well as interactive components such as quizzes, puzzles, or even games. All it takes is a bit of research.

    Ask for Help

    If you’re having a hard time training new employees, it may be time to call in some help. Professional workplace training companies are out there and can help to educate your staff on a great number of things.

    Typically, these groups come right to your place of work to administer their training. However, the assistance provided can prove to be pretty costly. In order to keep training costs to a minimum, think of your current staff. If any of them are exceptionally talented in one of the areas your training covers, ask them if they would be willing to spend some time with your trainees. They may be able to provide insights that would not have occurred to you.

    Encourage Learning

    • It’s hard to teach someone who doesn’t want to listen to what you have to say. And, if your new employees aren’t enthused about their new job, it can be difficult to train them on doing things effectively.
    • It’s important that you spark an interest in your trainee to learn about their job, rather than simply tell them what to do. Make sure that they know that there’s nothing wrong with asking questions, even if it’s less about their job and more about the company as a whole. The more motivated they are to learn, the more their performance will improve as time goes on.

    Give Them Something to Accomplish

    • After you’ve instructed your new employee on how to do their job, give them something to do so you can see how much of their training they can remember. Make sure that you monitor them as they do this, but try not to interfere too much unless they need help. Not only does it give you a good idea of what they’ve learned, it will also help them figure out how to apply it to their new job and help them to feel a sense of accomplishment.

    Keep Things Fun

    • One of the biggest things you can do to help build a relationship between your trainee and your organization is to keep the tone light and friendly. This doesn’t mean that you should make your training any less effective, or not work as hard during the training period. Just make sure to smile and keep things positive while you’re working with them. Not only will it make learning their new job more pleasant for them, socializing with them now could also lead to you making a new friend in the future. 

    Training is one of the most integral components of organizational success and scalability. Show it the respect it deserves.

  • 🗞 Invest In Culture & Relationships ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ➡️@ROIOverload ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ➡️https://bit.ly/2QbKF0T

    Always tell people around you how grateful and appreciative you are of them.

    It’s such a simple yet uplifting message.

    Don’t wait until they do something for you or they’re sitting in your office during a quarterly or annual performance revue, say it everyday, whenever you get a chance and create a culture of support, recognition and positivity.

    Out of money, success or job opportunity, feeling appreciated is one of the main career motivators.

    Everything else can only go so far.

    What’s appreciation?

    • Coffee
    • Recognition
    • A thank you at the end of an email
    • Acknowledgement
    • Asking how they are
    • Taking them for lunch
    • Additional responsibilities & opportunities

    Take time out of your day and appreciate those who work with you.

    It will be the best return on investment you’ll ever see.

    Investing in culture & relationships = success.

    The hardest thing to do in an organization as a leader isn’t to…

    • Teach new strategy
    • Develop a playbook
    • Onboard new tech
    • Hire new reps

    The hardest thing to do as a leader is to invoke change.

    If you want your team to align with your goals and the goals of the organization.

    “People don’t resist change. They resist being changed!” – Peter Senge

    • Be honest.
    • Be transparent.
    • Have your teams best interest at heart.
    • Show them how their own personal goals and your goals are aligned.

    People will never work for your goals. They will always work for their own.

    The secret is aligning their own personal goals with your goals, the organizations goals and the customers goals.

    That’s when you’ll achieve success.

    No one wants to buy their boss a Ferrari.

    My first instruction about margin was when I learned to drive.

    My Dad was a good driving instructor. He taught me 10 and 2, check your mirrors, and if you are not breaking the law, you don’t have to panic when you see a State Trouper.

    He also taught me two lessons about margin.

    You don’t know what the car in front of you will do. Leave space.

    Sure. If everyone continues “as they are”, you can pretend to be one of the Blue Angels on the interstate all day. But things never stay “as they are.” People are erratic and do the unexpected. Animals run across the road. Tires blow. Cars break down. Airplanes fall from the sky. (That doesn’t usually happen. But it could happen.)

    Allow space. Allow for the unexpected.

    Always look for an out.

    To this day, I assume the car careening down the opposite lane could miss the curve and come at me. The car flying toward the stop sign preparing to stop on the proverbial dime might forget brake.

    How am I going to get out of the way of crazy? Know which lane is clear. Know where the shoulder is. Look for a soft landing.

    Allow for more margin than you think you need.

    Know where you have an out.

    To state the obvious, this post is not actually about driving.

  • 🗞 Catch People Doing Something Right ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ➡️@ROIOverload ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ➡️https://bit.ly/2W70p6r

    Recognition in the workplace is so important. Too often we focus on the bad and ignore the good. Being able to recognize an individual’s contribution and capitalize on it and also acknowledge it will not only work positively for the recognition process but also enhance the sense of achievement and add positivity and performance as backbones in your organizations culture.

    Point Out The Good

    Recognition is vital to keeping people motivated and relevant in their respective contributions to the team and it also encourages everyone to push the limits in ensuring the goals set are successfully met.

    The following are some ways this recognition can be shown without too much fuss or fanfare yet still maintaining the sense of appreciation for their contributions:


    • Set up contests & gamify.
    • Show off when milestones are achieved.
    • Make it loud. Make it public. Celebrate the wins.
    • Work is a huge part of people’s lives. Make it fun and make it engaging.


    • Bump in pay, pay people what they’re worth.
    • Incentives for exceeding goals.
    • Accelerators, uncapped commission, quarterly and annual bonuses based on team performance.
    • Recognize excellence and pay out performance.
    • If every sales rep can drive a Lambourghini. Amazing.
    • Create a culture of winning and success.


    • Understand the career aspirations of your team.
    • What drives them? Where do they want to end up?
    • Help people understand the milestones they need to achieve to get to where they want to be.
    • Offer training, mentorship, schooling, coaching & every other tool available to make grow your team.
    • Be the enabler of your teams success.

    Catch people doing something right. Make it specific. Take positive action.

    Generalities are better than nothing but to truly stand out, you need to actually care and notice when someone does something amazing. Also, don’t forget to tell your boss when they’re doing an amazing job as well. Remember, everyone reports to someone, so just taking a moment and telling your boss how amazing they are, could make their day as well. At the end of the day, we’re all just doing our best to succeed and someone is our boss, regardless of whether or not it’s the Shareholders to the CEO or the Team lead to the SDR.

    The next time you see amazing performance, or a string of positive actions. Take note, say something and appreciate them!
