On St. Valentine's Day, Or Any Romantic Interlude, Woo Your Sweetheart With Chocolates, Roses ... AND A Leadership TalkWritten by Brent Filson
Continued from page 1
If you want to win or sustain fondness of a loved one, a Leadership Talk may just make it happen.
Mixing leadership and love may seem like mixing apples and oranges. But great leadership and love share common elements. For one thing, when you are wooing your lover, you may be taking lead. And for another, using a Leadership Talk, you're fostering a deep, heartfelt relationship -- as great leadership often does.
Here are a few pointers on giving a Leadership Talk that you can put into effect this Valentine's Day or any other interlude for love. Before you speak, simply ask three questions: Do you know needs of your lover? Can you bring deep belief to relationship? And can you have your lover take action? If you say ‘no' to any one of those questions, you can't give a Leadership Talk.
The questions apply to lovers as well. To foster a deep, human emotional relationship, you must know what your sweetheart needs, deep belief you bring to relationship, and finally, action you want your sweetheart to take.
However, questions are not meant to be stumbling blocks to your Leadership Talk but stepping stones. If you answer ‘no', step back and assess your situation. Think through what you might say so that you can ‘yes' to each question. Then speak. Give a Leadership Talk. And, by way, don't forget chocolates and roses. ============================ 2005 © The Filson Leadership Group, Inc. All rights reserved. =============================
