How to Deal with People for Personal and Professional Growth
“When you know how to handle people, handle people well, for you may need people one day! Don’t just shun them; don’t kill them! Don’t curse them; don’t harm them! Pray for them, for they are a good part of the story, both for the good and for the bad; get understanding, and disarm the armed who seems to be a threat with wit and wisdom! Life is not a one day journey, so be careful!” ― Ernest AgyemangYeboah
Before starting, let’s answer these questions: Do you think you can eke out an existence devoid of human interference? Do you think you are so proficient that people’s presence is avoidable in your life?
If your answer is yes, then for you, it is of paramount importance to know and understand socialite and its worthiness.
A person should leave such an indelible mark in society that everyone desires to make him an acquaintance. Family and society are those high-priority individuals that are extensively associated with us. Their contribution at each step plays a crucial role in making us a prize-winner.
If we think that we can make our existence by cutting away from society and family, then it is not possible in any way. We need them at every major step of life. Can you tell any such work which you have done discretely till the end without any aid? Is it possible to do a task in which no one else’s cooperation has been taken directly or indirectly? No, there cannot be any such work in which you have not needed society or family. That is why we should carve out our behaviour in such a way that people take us assertively.
To make this journey of life smooth and remarkable, let’s learn some good public behaviour methods by which we can easily become distinguished and a prestigious personality.
Win people with your Behaviour
- Acknowledge Their Importance
Who does not like that he gets an identity; people should know him and feel his presence. When someone is made to realize how important they are and their presence makes the atmosphere better. This feeling touches people’s heart, and they always remember it.
For this, you must make people feel special whether they are family members, employees or any other person. When they feel that they have a lot of importance in your life, then they will never be able to avoid your talk. If you are successful in making the people coming in your contact feel like this, then surely you will achieve a good position.
- Show That You Care
What are you doing, what are you achieving, what goals are you running with; frankly, it does not matter to anyone. No matter how much you boast about your work and achievements, but you will not be able to attract people. Whether it is family or business, everyone wants to hear that how much you think about them, how much you care for them. What is the use of your achievement till they are not getting any benefit?
Therefore, keep in mind in dealing with people that instead of bragging and riding the high horse, we should tell them that how worthy it is for them. Instead of telling that our company has made this product, tell how it’s advantageous and what the fringe benefits are there for them.
This kind of approach will attract people to you and your product. They will feel that you care for them and trust will get built.
- Self-sufficing? – Give a Rethought
We are dependent on others for every small and big service; there is no doubt about it. So if we think that we do not need anyone, we are independent then, change this thinking today. We need people for everything from Newspaper, Grocery to Big Appliances. And you probably wouldn’t like to live without them.
- Time changes for all
Time never stays the same. Every person’s days change, sometimes early sometimes late. Always remember this and never mistreat people. You haven’t seen the future and who knows, that person may reach such a level that you hesitate to even talk to him just because of the treatment you gave him in the past.
Hence, treat everyone well, whatever their status is.
- Know the Impact of your Behaviour
When we say something to a person, good or bad, its effect goes far. The mood and behaviour of a person depend a lot on how we are treating him. He treats those around him in the same manner. We can say that your behaviour with others starts a cycle, in which the mood of all the people involved depends on your behaviour. Therefore, always treat people well so that they also spread joy and happiness to others.
- People may not Help but may Harm
If you mistreat any person just because he is of no use to you, then you are making a big mistake. The person who can’t help can definitely harm you because of your ill behaviour.
Many times we rebuke some people for not being of any use. You may be right, but if they get hurt, they can do you a lot of damage.
Therefore, it is better whether someone is useful or not, big or small, we should keep our behaviour best.
