Congratulations & Celebrations
One of my LinkedIn connections just posted a post starting with the phrase, “I wouldn’t normally post something like this on LinkedIn but…”
They then proceeded to praise their team for their huge efforts in recent times, including a celebratory photo of the team in better times. All the comments were super positive, as they should be. I did too but I had a nagging question – why the #$@% would they think it wasn’t OK?
We’ve probably all got different ideas of what LinkedIn is for. I know I do. It’s broadly a business / professional networking site. So, whatever you think networking is, is what LinkedIn is for, for you.If people don’t like it or don’t agree, they can disconnect. As can you.
I would like to do business with people who are expert, innovative, easy to work with, push me to develop, help me make money. Someone who shouts out and stands up for their team publicly via whatever channel is definitely someone I’d like to work with. If a superstar potential job applicant in that person’s industry saw that post, it could only add to their magnetism as an employer of choice. Not only was their post a good idea now, it’s always been, and always will be, a good idea. You have a go…
What can you do tomorrow to publicly, proportionately, and appropriately shout out for your team?
I’m trialling a self-directed course I’ve developed on personal effectiveness. One of the ten lessons within it is on influence, a critical element of which is building and maintaining rapport. You get all five of my books (in eBook format) when you sign up. If that sounds of interest, you can learn more at www.lifesuccesslearning.com .
