What is Your Legacy as a Sales Manager and or Leader?

Happy businessmen discussing business report sitting at meeting table in office.

“Leadership flows out of what we do and who we are.”  – Dan Flow, CEO & Chairman (Flow Companies, Inc.)

My question to you today is “Do you care?”  Do you truly care about:

  • Your People?
  • Your Customers?
  • Your Community?

As a Sales Manager and or Leader of your company, I want you to take a moment to ask yourself what kind of legacy are you leaving?  Are you showing up each and every day to just get by?  To just do a job?  I hope not.  As leaders, we impact every person we engage with (good or bad).

Do you want to be known as a person who truly cares about your people, your customers, and your community?  What are you intentionally doing to build up others and keep your promises.  One thing we have in life is OUR WORD.  Are you keeping your word?  Are you pulling the greatness out of your people?  Are you asking what you can do to help customers daily in the field?  Are you willing to give back?

Your People

Let’s start with discussing your people.  You have been put in your position to help your people create results.  This starts at the human element.  Your people are just that – PEOPLE.  They are not a number, they are human beings with all the complexities life brings at us.  Have you taken the time to notice what your people are doing right?  Have you given an ata boy or ata girl about that?  We are constantly told to point out what people AREN’T doing, however we are not reminded to look for and reinforce what people ARE doing well.  So take a moment today to intentionally look for what your people are doing RIGHT and thank them for doing a great job!  Ultimately your people want to know if you care about them and their lives.  When you show that you care, your people will care more about creating results for you!  “The essence of effective coaching is treating people the way they can be, not the way they are.”

Do you have a higher purpose?

Compassion Trip – Baja Mexico June 2015

It has been heavy on my heart since 2011 to be able to give back in a much bigger way.  Do you have a higher purpose?  Do you know what your higher purpose is?

MWI was honored to participate in a 7 day compassion trip to an orphanage located in the Baja California region of Mexico.  The orphanage provides care for 90 children in a loving environment.  The Mission provides seven family units of 12 children between the ages of 2 to 20 years.  Single moms live with the children providing a loving home atmosphere while a married couple provide the oversight of ten teenage boys.  A nursery mother provides around-the-clock care for newborns and toddlers.  Infants with special needs, such as cleft lip palate or other physical disabilities are also lovingly care for by experienced staff.
