How do you make people feel? Maya Angelou is quoted as saying “people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
In this ImpactBank: the Kickass Koach episode, for the first time I'm not sharing a story. Instead, I share how to use a key Leadership Skill—Acknowledgements—to influence performance and support people in every conversation.
It takes practice and its worth the effort. Let me know how you put it into action. I would really enjoy hearing from you—comment here or after reading my blog post.
In the Blog Post I share a few more examples of how and where you can apply Acknowledgments to increase your influence.
Join my mailing list. This month’s newsletter will include a challenge to make your conversations better and I will include transcripts of the acknowledgments I shared today.
Next Week: The 5th in the series on conversation. Listening. How many of you use the time when others are speaking to figure out what you will say in response. How truly listening to the other person will revolutionize your conversations.
Now go out and Make it a kickass day!
