On this show:
- When you rent a car, what kind of gasoline you choose?
- We do minimum, because it’s not our car.
- Ideas are similar. If the idea is mine, you’ll probably do the minimum.
- But if I have the courage to allow the idea to be yours, I’ll not only get compliance, but suddenly I can get enthusiastic cooperation from you.
- Marshall Goldsmith says in What Got You There Won’t Get You There, “You may have improved the content of my idea by 5 percent, but you’ve reduced my commitment to executing it by 50 percent, because you’ve taken away my ownership of the idea.”
- In How to Win Friends and Influence People, Dale Carnegie said, “Let the other person feel that the idea is his or hers.”
- Stop worrying so much who gets credit. If you do, you’ll make amazing things happen in your organization.
