Helping others should be a natural extension of every business leader’s responsibilities. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come as easy as you would think. Here are 10 thoughts that can remind you to help others.
Sharing knowledge One of the easiest ways to help others is to simply share your knowledge. You don’t have to be in front of a classroom to teach. Every day there is an opportunity to educate someone about your area of expertise. The key is to keep educating yourself so you can stay ahead of the curve.
Finding out what’s valuable to them
The number one rule of helping people should be to find out what’s actually valuable to someone.y.
Sharing your resources
Think about the resources you’ve invested in and be mindful of whether they can help someone else.
Making them aware of an opportunity
It’s important to keep an eye out for opportunities. It could be good press, a potential partner, or a general business opportunity.
Giving them transparent feedback
Transparent feedback can be tough because some people don’t take constructive criticism well.
Being a brand advocate
Think about the products and services that you love, and don’t be shy about letting people know about them.
Make an effort to actually send out several intros each week. However, don’t let your credibility take a hit: make sure the people you’re advocating are legit.
