How to find and work with right people

You might have heard – You are the company you keep! It is true. But easier said than done. If you are avoiding someone, it will be visible. If you are pushing to be with someone, it is visible too. Finding and being with right people should be seamless and graceful.

When you respect and engage with high performers – irrespective of their experience level, grade, and background, you feel charged. High-quality performers do induce their characters to others who are in their proximity. It is easy to identify them through their speed, precision and detail orientation. It is difficult to dampen their engine, for a long time. They tend to sidestep paths of high-resistance and find ways to move forward, swiftly and precisely. They are busy. They are smart and add value at every instance of interaction.

The pace of your work, precision, and detail-orientation displays your confidence. Confidence is derived out of repeated successes and learnings from shorter failures. This builds competence. You will start doing more and better. Confident people are the right people to work with.

Look at how a confident doctor boosts the confidence of a chronic patient. If he is quick, precise, and detail oriented, he will be decisive. He will convince the patient of the procedure which he believes works well and confident of. The patient follows and achieves better disease management, a better lifestyle irrespective of the condition and prognosis.

While you are building your new venture, testing your idea and putting together an initiative, look-out for confident people in the form of team members, sponsors, and potential customers. They will help you drive confidently and maneuver well. Exploration and experimentation require those who are confident of doing so than the confidence in the map or the plan they carry. Confident people are dynamic, quick learners and forward-thinkers. They are the right people to work with to help you play at your best.
