Every part of business involves interaction with people. It doesn’t matter if you are in sales, technology, management, or anywhere else in between. It is the human side of business that permeates through every business interaction. Successful people learn to work with others in a positive and professional manner. Difficult people find their path paved with difficulty and constant conflict.
The Human Technology
It is easy to forget that with all the new devices, such as the iPad and smart phones, along with social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn; that there is actually another person on the other side of the technology. Though you can’t see or hear them, they are there. So it’s important to remember that your email, texts, tweets, instant messages, and statements on their wall have an impact on them. All business communication should be treated with care and respect. Be mindful and aware that your interactions convey a mood. Learn to be present in all interactions, whether digital or not, and learn to imagine the effect of your interaction on the other person before you press the “Send” button.
Attraction and Image
In business you are either getting more connected to others or pushing them away. Your image and ability to attract people can draw in others and bring them to your cause. This starts with learning to project a consistent image – inside and outside. By being present you are opening yourself up to the understanding of what effect you have on others, and how effective others are in the same circle of influence. You may have to adapt your attitude, appearance, and preparation in order to create the kind of human capital that will help you to excel. Some people may need a whole image makeover. Some may only need to be made aware of subtle changes they can make in order to further smooth their interactions with others. However, it starts with honing the skill of awareness and being confident enough to leave behind old baggage, and then you can begin each interaction with renewed energy and passion.
