Zig Ziglar said, “You can’t make a good deal with a bad person.”
How do you know whether the person with whom you are dealing is a good person?
Good leaders look for good people with whom to associate and spend time in order to become a better person for their families, their companies, and themselves.
The key to knowing if an associate is a good person is whether or not they work with you to develop a mutually beneficial know, like, and trust relationship.
Think about your closest friend. How did that person become your closest friend?
The answer is simple!
-> You spent time with them.
-> While spending that time, you learned about how they think, act, live.
-> Once you learned to like them, trust was developed and built.
Learning if someone is a good person is determined through time spent with them, observing them, listening to them, and seeing how they treat others, as those activities reveal what is in their hearts and what they value.
Sol says… “For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” ~ Proverbs 23:7
As a leader, think about what you demonstrate is in your heart by the way you think, act, and treat others.
Make it a great day and keep being awesome.
