Things to Think About - To add value to others, one must first value others

Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier

“To add value to others, one must first value others.” - John Maxwell


Isn’t common sense wonderful?  Think about this for a moment.  Let’s say you are really, really smart.  You have great ideas that are relevant.  Let’s face it, you can add great value.  It would be impossible for me to tell you how many people like this I have been asked to work with over the years.  Why?  Because no one wanted to listen to them or work with them and they couldn’t get things implemented.  Why?  Because they only cared about themselves, their time in the spotlight, their career trajectory.  It was always all about them. What Maxwell is saying is that no matter how smart you are, how powerful you are, if you don’t care about those around you, all you will get from them is threshold behavior, non-engagement, and even sabotage in the worst cases.  Someone once explained it this way, “I don’t care what you know until I know you care.”  Pretty sound advice, I’d say.

Good luck on your journey!
