In this episode of Come Rain or Shine, Howard Prager, President of Advance Learning Group, joins the show to discuss the traits of encouraging leadership and the impact is has on making someone’s day.
As an author, speaker, executive coach, and leadership consultant, Howard is passionate about positive reinforcement and making emotional connections. Often, we aim to acknowledge and reward quality performance, but rarely does it become with motivational language.
The most powerful words someone can say to you are “You made my day!” You haven’t just done an act of kindness when you hear that. You have done something, at the right time and in the right way, that’s the most powerful tool for inspiring your colleagues, staff, friends and even strangers. As a result, you may turn someone’s day or life around, inspire and motivate them, or simply get them unstuck.
Hence, the context for Howard’s new book, Make Someone’s Day. While skill breeds excellence, it’s not necessarily a morale boost. As such, we should consider what would happen if we gave people VIP treatment through unique expressions of verbal gratitude and how our influence would increase accordingly. Making someone’s day comes with being a leader.
