Why Do They Come To You

If you are a leader you have many different conversations throughout the day. Again, let’s clarify that everyone is a leader. Some have a title but we are all leading.

So why will people come and talk to you? Why do they send you an email, a text, or make a phone call to talk?

Is it because of your title? A few of the questions, the surface level questions, may be because of the title, but for the meaningful conversations the answer is a resounding NO.

People don’t reach out to you because of what you do, they will come to you because of who you are.

They will reach out and want to have the meaningful conversations because they know they won’t get what you can give them anywhere else.

Reminder for the day.  It’s not your title or what you do, it’s who you are that matters most to people.

I’m cheering for you.
