This was a pure leadership development call.
According to Hochman, everyone should subscribe to their own set of rules in life and business. You can have three, five, fifteen, but you need to write down your list of rules and commit to them because only then will you be able to become an impactful leader.
When you create an infrastructure that is predictable that people can count on, people will sign up with you more often and buy from you more often.
Hochman asked listeners if they’ve ever felt a sense of overwhelm, if they’ve felt like people were taking up too much of their time, if they felt that people always expect them to do what they want them to do or expect free training.
And the list went on, but it essentially accumulated into the singular question:
Have you ever thought these things and felt a sense of overwhelm?
If the answer was yes, the solution is simple. You have the authority and power to create strong relationships that are full of respect. Take out a notebook and write down your rules. Don’t let people walk over you and suck you dry.
Here are a few examples of Diane Hochman’s own rule…
- She only works with people who deserve it, not who need it.
- When she’s working with people, she has places people can contact her. She’s exceptionally available, but she doesn’t allow people to contact her one-on-one personally.
- There is no putting people down. Anyone who is putting her or her people down is out. If they are rude, or diminishing of others, she eliminates them.
- When it’s family time there’s no screens unless they’re spending time together watching a movie or show.
Now it’s time to come up with some of your own rules! Because learning to manage yourself and others is where the money lies.
Be sure to pull your rules out once a month and review them. Ask yourself if they are still serving you?
Are you creating a community around yourself where everything is win-win?
Don’t be afraid to change them in a world that is constantly changing around us.
In closing, Hochman left us with a simple affirmation. Everything you want can be yours if you just set your goals.
So get started now. Take out that notepad and jot down what is important to maintain your business and life in a way that serves you AND your community.
