Wow, Another Successful 4th of July in the United States… If you don’t live here, that Ok, this Post Still applies to you as well. Every year, I assist with the Sound System set-up at the Annual Community Event and Fireworks Show. This year, I Asked if I could do the Sound completely by my Self… They said: Sure! So I used all my own gear and put together a Killer Sound system… Well, Almost!
During the Show, One of the event leaders came to me, about a dozen times and said: “Dave the people in the Very back… they can’t hear very well. I said OK…”
But then during his last message, at the end… I Said: “Perhaps if… the folks in the back want to hear… they should move up Closer… there is a Ton of space if they want to hear” You see, did he even consider that the folks in the back… could care less about the music, they just came for the Fireworks… and if they wanted to hear… better, they would move closer.
How does this relate to you and/or business?
Well, sometimes I talk to people that are way in the back of the business. They are not very involved in the Webinars, the Face book Groups or the agenda provided by their sponsors. They are way in the Back, trying to see… the “Big Picture” but not close enough to See the Details. Sometimes you try to talk to them, sometimes you call them by name… yet they can’t hear!
This bothers some people, because just like my event leader… You want everyone to hear! But, you must realize that not everyone wants to be upfront, not everyone wants your help, not everyone wants to Hear!
As Leaders, we lead. As Followers, people follow. As Event Leaders, Mentors, Coordinators, Sponsors, we must clue in and remember… not everyone shares in our idea of what’s Valuable, and Not everyone wants a front door seat to our event, that shares the details of the Value… the Value in “The Big Picture”.
