Recently my team and I remained in a meeting with a buddy of mine. He and I are developing a brand-new workshop. While we were going over the nitty-gritty of who would do what and how all of this would work, I shared that we would be using my model for the webinar, my group would run the chat and Q&A, and we ‘d manage the show-up and compose and follow-up campaign.I didn’t ask
if this was alright. I understood that this was the proper way to do it and shared my opinion with complete certainty.

If that doesn’t work for you, then we aren’t partnering.”It didn’t make them a bad person. It simply meant that we are not a good fit.And guess what?They have all been willing to work the manner in which works for me because of the certainty I have actually in the conversation.Related: A Leading TED Speaker on the Most Important Leadership Skill Today If there is a
approach or system of doing things that works well for you, stop allowing others to alter it due to the fact that of their interests, desires and whims.
