When are people most likely to do what you ask?

NYLT_Ken Strongman 10When are people most likely to do what you ask?  (Especially if it is something they are not excited about!)

·     When they trust you

·     Experience shows you are a reliable leader and ally

·     They understand you make decisions for the good of the group

·     They know you care about them

How many of you have heard the first law of Real Estate: “Location, Location, Location”

Well the first law of team building is: Relationships, Relationships, Relationships.  Relationships come from involvement with people.  Listening is the most important skill in building those relationships and resolving any conflict, whether the conflict involves you as a participant or as a moderator. Unless you make a conscious effort to listen, you will miss vital facts and beliefs that could lead to a satisfactory resolution.

**For the last decade I’ve been involved with leadership development of tomorrow’s leaders.  Using my expertise, I am training the youth leaders in conflict resolution.  This blog is adapted from my training materials.
