How We Unintentionally Create Resistance
Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
- When we meet a challenge, we were taught to “add fuel” instead of reduce friction. Unfortunately, adding fuel actually can create more resistance.
- We underestimate the impact that a small point of friction can have on our ability to produce big results. The moment we remove that friction, we see immediate gains and often the big challenge we are trying to solve evaporates.
- The harder we push others, the more they push back. Rather than pushing or dragging people to our goals, why not remove the friction that’s keeping them from achieving those goals on their own?
- Focus less on adding positives and more on removing negatives.
We're starting a new series this week called the VERSUS Series where we contrast something we were taught to do versus something that actually works. This week, we're dealing with the way that most of us were trained to deal with challenges. When we meet a challenge , we were taught to do everything we can to overcome the challenge -- and work ourselves and our staffs to death in the process. But, what if working harder wasn't the answer?
In fact, what if what we are doing to overcome the challenge is actually creating MORE resistance? In today's episode, discover why pouring more fuel on a challenge can actually create MORE resistance and why you should be focused on removing friction instead. By the time you're done, you'll be solving challenges more effectively (and without killing yourself and your staff in the process) #LikeABuilder.
