The Platinum Rule

What if, on the first day you arrived at a new job, they handed you a program similar to the game day programs you can buy at sporting events?

The program would feature each of your new fellow employees with a picture, a bio, some specific information about how to communicate effectively with them, and keys to their work style.

Wouldn’t that help you quickly, efficiently, and effectively step into your new role?

There is such a program…but you have to develop it yourself. The key is knowing how to look for clues that tell you the types of things the program would tell you, especially communication and work style.

Go to google.video.com, then Search for Tony Allessandra. Click on the video titled Platinum Rule. It’s only 1:59 minutes and it is the key to understanding who people are.

Good luck!
