The power of making people significant may be most obvious in instances where that kind of significance is absent. If articles circulating on LinkedIn and other social media are any indication, feeling significant is hitting a nerve that translates directly to employee engagement and retention.

So what can you do to make people significant? See people for who they really are. Care about the things they care about. Show up for their life events. How about this one? Put away your phone. We offer these ideas and more on our podcast on this topic. Listen in for real-life stories from Larry and from our friend, colleague and seasoned business developer, Ellen Hoeppner, about how making people significant has made a difference for them and helped them achieve their business goals.

On all our podcasts and blog posts, you have an opportunity to talk back to us through comments and emails. We hope to hear from you! Until next time, manage to make a difference every day!
