EVOLVE with the You Evolving Now Weekly Blog!!!

 

The power of “Outside Eyes” is a true gift for our EVOLUTION in our 4 P’s: as a Person, a Partner, Parent, and Professional! “Outside Eyes” refers to an outsider’s perspective with fresh and honest eyes. Of course, there are a few steps to making this work… the outsider must be brave and tactful enough to deliver difficult information, the receiver must be willing to accept it, then… as a team… be willing to apply a plan to EVOLVE the issue! Perhaps you’re a blended family, running a business, or building a team… no matter the situation; there will be “Outside Eyes” and the growth of our vision and relationships depend on our ability to respect the power of “Outside Eyes”. As a remarried man; my wife entered an “already made family” with three kids. My… and our EVOLUTION depended on me being able and willing to respect her “Outside Eyes”. I’ve also been on the other side as a new employee… and again… the EVOLUTION of a company depends on its willingness to hear, listen, and respect the view of the “Outside Eyes” of others: typically customers, clients, but also new hires. “Outside Eyes” have the ability to see things we can’t because we are too close, married to the idea, and emotionally invested… sometimes clouding our view and making us self-righteous and rigid. So… how to do it!

Let of Ego

The biggest challenge to us accepting the power of outside eyes is that whatever the other person is complaining about, wanting to alter, or vent about tends to be our baby. Whether it’s our actual baby… as in our child, teenager, family, our business, our new brilliant idea, etc. It’s ours… it’s what we’ve created and because we’ve created it and we are use to being in charge of it… it can be extremely emotionally difficult to hear someone say anything negative about it or want to change it.

To EVOLVE, we must be willing to put our ego to the side and do two things:

  1. Ask ourselves… is what the person saying true? Outside of our emotion… is it true? If yes… then get ready to move forward in the spirit of change and EVOLVING!
  2. Recognize the good in the messenger! Hopefully we have picked great, awesome, and influential people to be in our life: our significant other, employees, a company, etc. So, when this person comes to us… we must recognize they are not the Devil, this was not an easy message for them to deliver, they most likely didn’t want to have to say it, they cared enough to say it, and most likely want positive change in order to continue having a positive relationship with us!

Remember… we have been, and one day, will be the one with “Outside Eyes” and will want our opinion to be respected and valued. Yes, it’s hard to thank someone for ripping our idea, efforts, children, parenting, or leadership. However, a great business listens to what the customer wants, needs, values, and is able to anticipate trends and necessary change. Let’s do the same in our 4 P’s!

Message over Words!

This is a tough one! Words matter… they will either build or destroy. The toughest part of EVOLVING with “Outside Eyes” is the person will not always say their truth or the truth in the way that is best or easiest for us to hear. Perhaps they have held it in for so long and now they are boiling over, or they have been saying it and have been ignored, or maybe they are just blunt, rude and have little social etiquette. The way “it” was said will need to be addressed… but cannot over power the MESSAGE! Many will argue over the words said or that anything was said at all… and miss the power and opportunity of the message. Don’t let it happen to you!

If you are the one delivering the message; use this. If you have been reading my Blogs, watching my videos, have the App, or I have come to your company or school… you know about my Positive Sandwich!

This is layered in the order of Love, Issue, Love:

  1. Start with Love. I’d like to talk to you about something that’s been on my mind. I love being here, with you, or with the company, etc. and feel free to add the great and good things you enjoy.
  2. Issue Time – I’ve noticed_______________ and the impact it’s having on _______________. I think I have an idea that may help, but wanted to hear what you thought first. Listen and share.
  3. Thank you for listening and allowing me to have a hard conversation with you. It means a lot.

 

Feel free to make changes and add your own words. This is important to note: The Positive Sandwich does not promise you zero arguments, or always getting our way, or the person responding the perfect way… they are people and the first reaction to challenging news is typically defensiveness or to shut down. Since we know this… expect it, don’t react to it or mirror it back, and allow them time to process. Or…  enjoy the fact they appreciated your approach.

Remember this is old information and conversation for you… as you have been thinking about it and have practiced saying it in your head a few times. This is new info to them. The Positive Sandwich is to EVOLVE the situation and for your peace of mind that you brought up a hard issue in a respectful way!

United Front

Whether you are accepting some else’s “Outside Eyes” or you are the one with “Outside Eyes”… once the feedback is given, received, and processed… you are a team; This is a WE thing! Unified Front implies all things have been heard, ideas have been hashed, and it’s time to take a step forward… whether a big step or little step, but onward is the goal! Present the plan together to the kids, the employees, the company, the family TOGETHER.

The power of this is two-fold. Everyone may not be happy with the change: your children, family, coworkers, etc… nothing good will come out of ostracizing the person with “Outside Eyes” and creating a division at home, work, etc.

Second, if people do like the change… it would be awful for us to take all of the credit when the idea came from “Outside Eyes”. WE win together and this will be modeled… our kids will do what we do, the company will go as we go, and greatness will trickle throughout the teams we are building. Respect and honor the vantage point of the “Outside Eyes” in your life and perhaps beat them to the punch; allowing them a voice by asking their opinion!” – Andre Young

Also, students will graduate smarter… but will they graduate better?

Are you ready to impact the lives of your athletes?
