WHAT are you doing in your free time?
Customer Care is a Mindset, Not a Tactic
One of my favorite Gary Vee videos. I know quite a few of you are rolling out your MC plans and Customer Centricity or Customer Experience may be a part of it. This video here really make it clear that caring for your customer is more than just a strategy.
Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast
These two video have impacted the way I've been working with my team big time. It helped shape our Team Code aka Team Behaviors. It's definitely worth take 30 mins of your day to learn how Spotify works and see what parts of their culture you think could work for you.
Decisions, decisions, managing yourself, that's what I thought would be good to start with. I came across a bunch of content from a friend of mine, Salim Virani. Salim started Source Institute, Founders Centric, Leancamp and 5 other tech startups with a bunch of other start-up leaders. These articles helped me put some things into perspective and so I thought I'd share them with you.
“Some day soon, you’re going to have one of those days when you work for fourteen hours straight, and still won’t feel like you accomplished anything. You know, one of those days when you can’t even remember what you did, but your todo list remains untouched, accusing you silently, as you fall asleep at your computer.
It happens to all of us. It’s called a WIP problem - Work In Progress.”
Signals - learn to really listen
“Talking to customers is only useful when you’ve learned how to listen, and know what to listen for.”
Your decisions are only as good as your information
“In too many cases, we took too long to launch, learned where we went wrong, but didn’t have enough time left for another try.”
MobiliZe and empower
“Leadership is convening. It’s getting people together, rallying those with a common goal.
Leadership is support. It’s understanding what they need to get there and making sure they have it.
You can’t point the way without this foundation. If you want to lead, first mobilise and empower.””
The first step to building something
“Your first step depends on what you know, what you don’t know, and what you need to know.”
Neutralize your stressors
“And then there are slumps we can’t seem to break. Usually, this is because there’s some weight on us - stressors and worries. Debt, admin work, messes to clean up, people who get you down, commitments that drag on.
With a small investment, a lot of these can eliminated, and with a small ongoing investment, the rest can be kept under control.”
How To Make Stress Your Friend
Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat. But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case.
