On the First Hired, Last Fired episode, in studio Darren and Anita talk about simple choices you can make that will powerfully alter your impact and influence. On the job, many people are let go, and left wondering why. At home, relationships are mediocre at best, and families need hope that it won’t always be like this. In the world, we question what we should or can do to make things better.
The good news is, we can shape the global landscape by our decisions, behaviors, and attitudes. What if you could influence events, and missed the opportunity? But what if your resolve to change, changed the world? Take the three month challenge in the inspirational book, First Hired, Last Fired — How to Become Irreplaceable in Any Job Market.
Want to protect your job, and align yourself as the chosen one first hired? Learn simple principles, easy to remember, and set yourself apart. But to become irreplaceable, a difference must be evident. Interview and Employment Coaching basics will get you started, but the book will take you deeper.
As a leader, slow down to appreciate the special talents and work ethics of your top people. One of the interesting side-benefits to publishing the book has resulted in feedback from executives, managers, and business owners who say they were failing to recognize and acknowledge their best staff members. A new focus on gratitude is making the work-place happier and healthier, and transforming the job site from a place of dread, to an environment of joy. (Taking these basic philosophies with us at home, in friendships, and wherever we go makes a difference wherever we are.)
First Hired, Last Fired teaches you:
- How to dare to be different, so your irreplaceable qualities can shine.
- The secret great leaders know about first following a great distance.
- Not to deny personal problems, because they don’t wait outside the door, they follow you inside wherever you go.
- How to harness the power of words for your benefit, and the good of others.
- To focus on facts not get distracted illusions.
- The powerful edge when you trust your faith more than your fears.
- A mysterious attraction of wealth when you strive to give more than you take.
- How keeping your eyes on what you can, versus what you can’t, will open doors of opportunity.
- To see miracle-making possibilities in every problem.
- That saying yes, infuses you with the magic to make magnificence out of the mundane.
- Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. Sometimes saying no is the key to moving ahead.
- Why resolving to make our money serve God and people, versus striving to make God and people serve our money, will fatten our wallets.
