I’m still so much “in love” with Lift, a leadership book by Ryan & Robert Quinn that I’ve already written about a couple of days ago. It’s just brilliant. Actually, I want to take a marker and then just underline the whole book – but I guess that would be kind of stupid. So, for today, I’d just like to share with you passage on being other-focused:
“[M]ost people find that when they become other-focused they do not lose themselves; instead, they become their best selves. They like who they become when they care about others. This makes sense when we realize that our identities are inseparable from our relationships with others. We are social creatures, biologically wired to empathize with each other. Becoming other-focused does not eliminate our unique characteristics, it draws on our unique characteristics to help us make more or our relationships.”
One thought on “I’m still Up-Lifted…”
Dr. Nico Rose, Thank you so much for your enthusiasm for LIFT. I work for Berrett-Koehler Publishers and my job is to sell translation rights. The book is already available in Dutch, and it would be wonderful to have a German edition. Do you know of a German language publisher who may be interested in translating and publishing this book in German? If so, please let me know!
