Radio Show #379: Agile Leaders Adapt to Meet People Where They Are At

Special Guest: Nate Regier: Author of ‘Seeing People Through’

Leadership is the process of influencing diverse personalities and skill sets towards a common goal. One of the most important keys to engagement is personality.

Different personality types are motivated differently, communicate differently, and engage differently. Agile leaders adapt to meet people where they are at. A couple key engagement themes from my book:

1. Influence is about the Platinum Rule, not the Golden Rule
2. Engagement is maximized when the purpose of the organization aligns with their unique motivational needs. There are three steps to do this.
3. Safe honesty vs. real honesty. This distinction is the key to making a deeper connection with people to earn their trust.
