RELATED: A good leader will always meet needs first.

Good leaders will always satisfy people and their needs first before expecting, wanting or even demanding anything from them. When managers do something for someone, these people want to do something for the manager in return, they want to give something back. In return, when leaders understand and practice the Law of Connection, leaders can then feel free to say, ask, or demand something, and people are happy to give in response. Gratitude almost always follows favor.

You may remember good examples in your life where a person started to connect and gave something and then naturally received a positive response in return:

The leader connects the people and reacts

  • Perhaps how a mother gives the child unconditional love, care and support, and in response the mother experiences gratitude, respect and love without asking for it.
  • A motivating teacher or coach inspires and commits to one or more students and in return receives appreciation, participation, hard work, and achievements.
  • A good manager supports and encourages employees, promotes their professional development, and creates a positive work environment. In response, employees may demonstrate loyalty, commitment, and good performance.
  • Some friends can be seen helping, supporting and inspiring each other. It can become a positive and ongoing give and take pendulum.
  • Often it’s just a smile that someone needs, an encouragement, a listening ear and the other person blossoms and shines, feels noticed and shows gratitude.

One could now give many well-known examples, such as:

  • Reinhold Würth: As an entrepreneur, Reinhold Würth has made large donations for cultural, social and scientific projects. His generosity has earned him the gratitude of the community.
  • The example of Mozart and Schikaneder shows how Schikaneder, as a sponsor of Mozart, recognized his musical talent and enabled him to make his music accessible to a wide audience. Thanks to this generous support, Mozart was able to advance his career and leave behind his musical legacy.
  • Maria Theresa, a very important ruler of Austria, created a strong connection with her people by giving them protection and rights. In return, she could expect loyalty and support from them to strengthen and develop the country. This reciprocal relationship of give and take shaped her rule and helped her to successfully rule the Habsburg Empire.

You can probably think of many more examples. Whether from history, politics, art, entrepreneurship or from the neighborhood, the family…

Now, what can we do or give? What do the people around us need? What needs do the people around me have? Please think about it for a moment. Let’s try to find a need that we can and want to satisfy. Then do it and see what happens. Not just once. Have lots of fun with it!

English:

CONNECTION: A good leader will always prioritize meeting the needs.

Good leaders will first satisfy the needs of people before expecting, wanting, or demanding something from them. When leaders do something for someone, those people want to give something in return. In return, leaders can then request, or even demand something, and people are willing to give when leaders understand and practice the law of connection. Gratitude is what follows almost always.

Perhaps you remember some good examples in your life, where a person began to establish a connection, gave something, and then naturally received a positive reaction automatically:

  • Like a mother giving unconditional love, care, and support to a child and, in return, experiencing gratitude, respect, and love without asking for it.
  • A motivating teacher or coach, inspiring and dedicating themselves to one or more students and, in return, receives appreciation, participation, hard work, and success.
  • A good supervisor supporting and encouraging their employees, promoting their professional development, and creating a positive work environment. In response, employees can show loyalty, commitment, and good performance.
  • Often, friends help, support, and inspire each other, creating a positive and ongoing give-and-take cycle.
  • Often, all someone needs is a smile, some encouragement, and a listening ear, and the other person brightens up, feels acknowledged, and shows gratitude.

There are many well-known examples, such as:

  • Reinhold Würth, as an entrepreneur, made significant donations to cultural, social, and scientific projects. His generosity has earned him the gratitude of the community.
  • The example of Mozart and Schikaneder, where Schikaneder, as Mozart’s sponsor, recognized his musical talent and allowed him to make his music accessible to a wide audience. Through this generous support, Mozart was able to advance his career and leave behind his musical legacy.
  • Maria Theresia, the ruler of Austria, established a strong connection with her people by granting them protection and rights. In return, she received loyalty and support from them to strengthen and develop the country. This reciprocal relationship of giving and taking shaped her reign and helped her govern the Habsburg Empire successfully.

I’m sure you can think of many more examples from history, politics, art, entrepreneurship, or even from your neighborhood or family.

Now, what can we do or give? What do the people around us need? What are the needs of the people around me? Take a moment to think about it. Let’s try to find a need we can satisfy and want to fulfill. Then, go ahead and do it and see what happens. Not just once. Have fun with it!
