Leaders will manage a team, work with the same individuals every day, yet hardly know anything about their people!
These leaders have never prioritized acquainting themselves with the dreams, thoughts, hopes, opinions, and values of those they lead.
Leaders overestimate the amount of time and effort needed to get to know someone. In fact, in only one hour with you in private conversation, they could, probably by asking three questions, find the passion of your life:
What do you dream about?
A person’s dreams are powerful revealers of passion. When a person starts to talk about their dreams, it’s as if something bubbles up from within. Their eyes brighten, their face glows, and you can feel the excitement in their words.
What do you cry about?
Passion can be uncovered by peering into the hurts deep inside a human soul. The experience of pain or loss can be a formidably motivating force. When listening to a story of grief, you hear a voice thick with emotion, you see watery eyes flooded with feeling, and in that moment you glimpse the intense connections between a person’s deepest pain and their greatest passion.
What makes you happy?
I have fun hearing what makes people tick and seeing the smile that comes when they talk about where they find joy. Enjoyment is an incredible energizer to the human spirit. When a person operates in an area of pleasure, they are apt to be brimming with life and exuding passion.
If you can uncover a person’s dreams, hurts, and joys, you’ve discovered the central dimensions of their life.
