Is That The Real You I Am Looking At? Or is it someone else?
In July Gary Woltal wrote a blog post titled A Clown Has Many Masks. I found this to be a very interesting topic because I used to clown with my dad and his clown troupe back in the day. Even though it was short lived but that is another post. Let me get to my point.
On Tuesday night I witnessed a real example of people that wear masks and so did you if you watched The Biggest Loser show. Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels went out and invited their team members to the show. All smiles and happy to see their invitees and their invitees were equally happy to see them and accept the invitation to the ranch. The Mask is on at this time form both parties. The masks come off when the work outs begin though. The trainers are all of a sudden not their happy selves. They have turned into this evil, &$!#$!, you fill in the blank. And now the happy invitees that were all smiles now are crying and swearing and wondering if they are going to get out of the ranch alive. They either perform or else. Floyd Wickman and the Sweathogs program had nothing on these guys. I have heard stories about this program and it sounds like a cake walk compared to what these people are going thru.
I think that we need to look at this in light of our business today. We have office trainers and mentors that need to take their nice guy masks off and show their real selves. Maybe we need to sit down and take a real hard look at what we are doing and how we are operating our business. I am thinking that Bob and Jillian are on the right track and we can learn from them on how to be more intense and focus on our goals, if we have them. And if we don't have goals for our business health then maybe we should do something about it and get some written out to help get us back on track.
Ok the business may suck where you are but does that mean that we just sit back and do nothing? I think not, I think that now is the time to get back to basics and even get outside of our comfort zone and do something different. We cannot keep doing the same thing that we've been doing and expect a different result. That's silly!
Now is the time to take off our Oh Woe Is Me Mask and put on our Let's Go To Work Mask and not take it off until we are the Biggest Winner!
