#Interested September 28

Coach4aday blog posts are ideas that are shared to help people grow and learn. Would love for you to consider following the blog with one of the like buttons. You can follow by email at bottom right of post.

My twitter handle is @coach4aday2 if you want to follow the blog that way.

Each year the blog takes on a different focus. In 2019 the goal is for each post to bring you the reader a lesson, quote, message, or story that can help you grow.


Jim Collins author of the book “Good to Great” early in his professional life created a personal board of advisors.

One of the people he had was John Gardner who was Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare for President Lyndon Johnson.

On one occasion Jim said that Secretary Gardner gave him some valuable advice. He told him to:

“Quit trying to be interesting and start being INTERESTED in others.”


Here is a video where he tells us about his board of advisors.

One of the key aspects of leading a team or group of  people effectively is the ability to show genuine interest. That means not only appearing to care, but you really do need to listen to what people are saying. Listening and being INTERESTED is easier said than done.

One key to becoming skilled at being interested in others is to turn your total focus on that person. Having a phone, email, or another person distract you sends the message loud and clear you are not INTERESTED in what they have to say.

When you become INTERESTED in others the truth is you actually do become interesting because you care more about others than yourself.
