How do you have a positive impact on others?

If you really want to positively impact someone, what can you do?

Anyone who has had a good teacher or mentor understands the power of positive influence.

How do you create a positive impact on others?

A good teacher or mentor sees the best in their student or mentee. They see them succeeding. They expect them to succeed. They acknowledge improvements and success and play down mistakes and failures. They understand that learning anything new requires trial and error.  Errors are okay. They are part of life.

Someone who has a positive influence on others knows that people rise or fall to the level of your expectations of them. People behave as you expect them to behave. You extract different responses and behaviors from others based on what you expect of them.

Fun isn’t it?
