I was involved in a business that has to do with selling personal and professional development content online, through the Internet, from some of the best speakers, trainers, consultants in the world. And in the process of building a team, I learned a lot about the dynamics of different people in terms of their motives and what they wanted to accomplish. I also learned about their personality styles. Some of them were directors, and some of them were analyzers and relationship-oriented people, socializers, using the DISC as a means to gauge the different personality styles of people. And at the end of the day, I had to figure out who was motivated to accomplish what and by when, and show how working with me would be able to speed them along their pathway to get to what they wanted to do. So what I wanted to do in this video is share with you a couple of ideas that might help you in figuring out how you can build more cooperation with people. So the first thing comes down to, once you identify who you want on your team, the next question you have to ask yourself is what motivates them.
Everybody is motivated by different things and different combinations of motives. So, you have to ask yourself, "What are they motivated by?" I find that people are motivated based on a few of the key things such as money, respect and acknowledgement, prestige, achievement, power, and having a sense of contributing beyond themselves and leaving some type of a legacy. This usually is a motive for someone who is a little bit further down the pathway in achieving their goals and are really getting towards the end of their life and want to make sure that they are leaving something behind, so that they can really feel that they've contributed in some way. Now, as you think about what motivates people, this is really an interesting topic because there's primary motives and then there's secondary motives. You've got to figure out what the primary motive is for someone on your team, and then you need to ask yourself, "How can I help them get the results that they're looking to accomplish?" Before you proposition somebody to be part of your team, see if you can find a way to help them get what they want through your knowledge, experience, and contacts.
As you start to this, you're going to start to build some goodwill towards your objective and your project. And then once you are able to attract them to your team, you're going to want to reward them with financial incentives as well. This is particularly important, because over the long term, I find that all the other motives can certainly be useful and appreciated, but at the end of the day, we have a certain amount of time on this planet and this time can be used for different things. And based on being able to use our time to generate an income, that income can then be translated into almost anything else that we want and ultimately give us more freedom to do whatever we want with our time.
So, it's important to compensate people with financial incentives and show them how their contribution leads to a financial incentive. Very, very important.
Now what are some of the mistakes that I want you to be aware of? Well, first of all, first is a mindset mistake, thinking that you can do it all by yourself. Now, don't make a mistake about this. You can accomplish a tremendous amount by yourself. But if you really want to move to a whole new level of performance, you're going to need to figure out how you can relate well with others, and be able to add value to others, and be able to leverage their strengths, their ideas, their contacts, their capital to be able to move you forward in being able to reach your dreams quicker. That's what it's about.
It's about getting there quicker so that you can then use your extra time, resources, and capital to have a bigger impact. Does that make sense? Because if you can get to where you need to go in two years versus fifteen, now you have a whole lot of extra time to do even more good work. I think one of the biggest mistakes that people make is, aside from thinking that they don't need anybody else to be part of their plan, part of their drive to get to where they want to go in building their businesses, is not correctly identifying what motivates people. If you use the wrong motivators for individuals, simply, they're not going to use their best skills and experiences and put it forth towards your project.
And ultimately what's gonna happen? They're going to perform at a certain level, but you're not going to get the highest performance out of them. In order to get the highest performance out of them, they need to wake up in the morning thinking about how they can contribute in their way to your project and throughout the rest of the day and evening continue to think about this and meditate on it, so to speak, wake up in the morning energized and enthusiastic and bring forth their best version of themselves so that the project can move forward quicker, faster and easier.
So one of the best practices I want to share with you is you really need to prioritize who you want to work with. You need to understand what motivates them. You need to present yourself as a trusted professional who can help them get the results that they want in their own life and as you do that you will be able to present your opportunity and see if they are interested in being part of your mission, your vision, which you set as the entrepreneur.
