The only way that you can get people who don’t work for you to help you, they have to WANT to help you.
There are three key questions that, if answered correctly can turn your team members, peers, and even your BOSS into your follower:
- Do you care for me? You don’t have to be in love with them, but people want to know that they matter to you. I’ll offer simple, practical ways that you can start to actually care about others and begin to show it.
- Can you help me? Every person you meet is fighting a hard battle – and it’s likely that once you begin to care about them – even a little bit, you’ll find ways that you can help them in that battle. It may be something you can do, or someone you know who can help.
- Can I trust you? Trust is the foundation of all relationships. I’ll show you how you may unintentionally be undermining trust with others, and provide some easy ways to really begin to build trust with your team members.
Once you have answered these three questions, people will naturally begin to follow your lead. Are you willing to take action?

They will walk away with tools they can use to build (or rebuild) critical relationships with others.

- As a Founding Partner in the John Maxwell team, for the last several years I have been an executive coach working with teams in multi-billion dollar companies and have seen over and over again how implementation of these principles transforms culture and addresses key challenges that people are facing every day.
