KEEPING PEOPLE IN YOUR WORLD
“And if it happens that he says to you, ‘I will not go away from you,’ because he loves you and your house, since he prospers with you, then you shall take an awl and thrust it through his ear to the door, and he shall be your servant forever.
1. CREATE A DESIRE TO STAY
Why should people stay in your world? You must give them a reason to stay.
Put others first – and they will always want to stay with you.
2. BECAUSE THEY LOVE YOU
People love people – who love people.
Love puts the other person first.
Love ignores a person’s rank and role.
Love overlooks deficiencies.
Love overlooks mistakes.
Love creates a bond of trust
Love nurtures and encourages
Love treats all people with respect
3. THEY LOVE YOUR HOUSE
People must do more than love you. They must also love the house you are building. Make sure the other people in your house represent you well.
Make sure they have the same values as you.
Make sure they treat your servants and friends – with the same love and respect that you show to them.
4. THEY PROSPER WITH YOU
True leaders live to cause their followers and servants to flourish.
Beware the leader who prospers at the expense of his supporters.
To live high – but pay others low – will always bite you – in the end.
5. THEY LOVE TO SERVE FOREVER
People who flourish in their house of service – want to stay and serve forever.
Great houses grow on great servanthood.
People who are forever looking to leave – are better off gone.
People who are forever looking to serve – are better than gold.
KEEP PEOPLE IN YOUR WORLD – BY EMPOWERING THEM – TO MAKE IT THEIR WORLD.
