Josh Verne has some valuable advice for anyone who wants to excel in business. Here are some key points to note.
Leadership is Not Bossiness
Josh notes that, in the management of a company, people should embrace leadership and not bossiness. Being bossy is using your power to drive your personal agenda while leadership serves the interest of others. To achieve the objectives of a company, a leader use the respect he has acquired from people.
Make Everything a Win-Win
Josh advises never to agree to a deal or plan that is a win-lose rather strive to get a win-win situation for everyone on the team. Managers must stop settling for situations that don’t benefit all to skyrocket their business, team, and reputation as a manager.
Talk Less, Listen More
People only have two ears and one mouth and for a good reason. If you speak less, your words will be more powerful, and you’ll command more authority. Individuals must use their mouth and ears wisely to achieve their career and personal goals.
Have Balance in Life
Life is a balancing act; hence everything in your life must be balanced. Your job, relationships family, wealth, and health need balance. Lack of balance will cause people everyone and everything around you to suffer.
