Take the opportunity today to set someone up to succeed.

JULY 10th of ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At A Time.

Anyone that’s done dog training will recognise this technique. The idea is you make a task really easy for a dog to get right so that they get a reward. If repeated over and over the dog will associate the task with the treat. Dogs don’t talk human and tend to get frustrated quickly if they don’t understand what you’re asking them to do – so you make it easy.

The same technique can be used with people, not in a condesending way but in a positive affirming way. When teaching a new colleague a company process for instance have it typed out then show them the process so they can see what’s expected. If teaching a child, break the task down into the most manageable steps so they keep getting it right whilst continually moving forward. This gives them a sense of achievment and they’re much more likely to respond well and feel good.

In every situation today keep thinking how you can get someone to succeed in what they’re doing.

Enjoy
