HELPING PEOPLE BE AWESOME
Helping people be awesome is a mantra that I believe will change the world. Imagine a relationship between two people where they focus on understanding each other and knowing their strengths and weaknesses. Instead of one person trying to outshine the other, energy is focused on leveraging each others strengths to achieve the best possible outcome. Imagine a team that is centred on a single unifying purpose. Everybody on the team understands the purpose and knows how they can positively contribute to it. Instead of creating conditions perpetuating asymmetric information flows, transparency is the norm. Imagine an organization that is truly working collaboratively. Instead of enabling silos and fear mongering, people's energy is focused on building strong relationships and sustaining trust.
Helping people be awesome is a mind shift that reduces friction in relationships, fosters an enriching and collaborative culture, and ultimately allows one to focus more time and energy on doing cool stuff. Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we could all do more cool stuff everyday? It’s difficult but not impossible to put ego aside and hold the collective benefit as a priority. This is how helping people be awesome will change the world.
