Be a leader to everyone around you.
A while back, I came across a statistic that shocked me:
The average age of those diagnosed with clinical depression is 14.
How horrible is that? Imagine how many kids and young people are severely depressed, with everything going on in the world right now.
Everything about the pandemic has made people more depressed and anxious.
The isolation is to blame. Your friends, family, employees, and customers are all at risk.
As a leader, your job is to put a stop to this isolation. If you can do this, you’ll get rewarded on many levels.
First of all, it feels good to talk to people. It makes you feel safer and more confident. Nurturing relationships through communication is very rewarding on its own.
But of course, there’s even more that you can achieve.
From a business perspective, communication can translate to leads, customers, and profit. If you can reach out to those who need what you have to offer, your business can thrive.
I’ve explained before that empathy and communication are crucial. And you need to do much more than that now.
You must let people know that they’re not alone. You need to show your customers that you care about them and that you want to help.
This is how you can sell more than ever before – and feel great along the way. Plus, you can protect your business and put your team’s mind at ease. You’ll be a leader to everyone around you.
Break the walls of isolation and communicate with people. Your business will start to flourish almost as soon as you get good at this.
