Echo and Praise

Do you pay more attention to someone’s rank than the quality of their ideas?

This week I challenge you to pay close attention to people in your company who have an equal or lower rank than you.

Listen for an idea that can improve the company in a meaningful way.

Or for an idea that helps the lower-ranked people get promoted faster or eliminates a frustrating bureaucracy step for them.

Then use your star power.

Echo the idea and praise them by name on social media.

(You might choose to do this within your company’s distributor discussion group.)

Use the “Share” feature or copy-and-paste their words. Tag them in the post, or at least mention them by first and last name.

Even if your influence is at a peer-level, you are helping their idea gain traction.

Show them that you’re listening, you use the power you have to get good ideas heard, AND you give the credit to the creator.

That’s what great leaders do.

P.S. On Facebook, writing a comment on a post gives it a higher priority in the Newsfeed than a quick click of Like or Love. So when you see a good idea, take 10 seconds to write a comment. Even a quick “good idea!” comment can help their idea gain traction.
