When a person refers to ‘people’, they are most likely referring to people other than themselves. The term ‘people’ points the figure outwards, instead of inwards, and focuses our attention on the right subject. This forces us to be more interested in the problem of the person in front of us, rather than our own problems. We begin to take time to understand people and we learn what it takes to help them succeed.
When you work to help people win, your relationship and influence with those people always grows stronger.
It grows stronger because people can see that you are on their side, that you have their interests at heart and that, ultimately, your success is their success. This is what trust is built on. Never forget that trust is the foundation of influence, and influence is the essence of leadership.
“Helping people win should be the narrative for every great leader.” Mike Saunders, The Five Year Mark
