“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.” – Jack Welch
In a corporate space, for a man to stand out and be recognizable amongst the crowd, he should know how to dress, act, talk and listen. Often men with calibre to lead are stuck in positions without any professional growth. The reason being their mannerism, behaviour and inability to cope with others. ‘Men of Wisdom’ (MOW) is a well-structured training program, which helps you in grooming yourself and provides you the confidence to go out there and show your worth by enhancing your life skills.
Who is a MOW personality?
A MOW personality is someone who empathizes and collaborates with his fellow employees and can evolve beyond himself. As a MOW persona, along with appearance and communication, you should also be mindful about your behaviour in a corporate habitat. In other words, males who walk with everyone on the path of success, are the ‘Men of Wisdom’.
Why is it important to be a MOW Personality?
- To become a better version of yourself
- To think beyond self-limitations
- To perfectly balance corporate and personal life
- To earn respect, love and appreciation
- To become independent change-makers
- To shape your dreams and turn them into reality
When you are taking a leap of success, you not only progress with your personal growth, but also add to the organization’s success. By being a MOW personality, you create an environment that’s built upon trust and empathy. Working on your soft skills makes you come out as approachable, and that’s when people start believing in you. The destiny of your success is in how you walk shoulder-to-shoulder with others, and how well of a person you are. How can you be a MOW personality?
The perfect combination of masculinity and sensitivity prepares a man to be MOW. Here’s how to be one.
Be the man of sharp appearance
The first step to becoming a better version of yourself is when you understand what suits you and what doesn’t. It is when you establish a sense of style which is both comfortable and accurate for your role at work. Because if you do not look the part, nobody is going to give you the money, respect, or success. In other words, when you are well-dressed and groomed, you get what you deserve. When you choose the right outfit for the right occasion, and behave well, you create an aura around you. It is an aura of positivity and success. Make the right choices, choose the perfect combination of clothes, be in your best posture, and see yourself steal the show.
Put your best behaviour forward
In a corporate world, misbehaving would not only cost you your success but also your career. The way you sit or the way you talk defines who you truly are. So, as a MOW personality, adapt the good behaviour. Whether you are talking to a senior or training a junior, show equal respect and be polite to both. Working hard is essential, but to be successful you also need the support of your loved ones, and it will only come when you learn the art of work-life balance. Give your loved ones enough time, learn to tackle stress and guilt, keep yourself inspired and motivated with set targets, work towards being more confident, and lastly, believe in yourself.
Choose your words wisely
Being able to communicate effectively, is one of the most essential life skills of all time. When you value words, you become a great speaker, and listener as well. When your communication game, both, verbal and non-verbal is strong, understanding between you and other colleagues improves. It makes people believe that you know the language of business and thus, adds to the organization’s growth. A MOW personality is tactful about his communication, listens empathetically, gives constructive feedback and leaves people motivated with his words.
Be gender sensitive towards women employees
A MOW personality is someone who understands the well-deserving women and supports them in their journey of success. Eliminate gender biases from the system and take a step towards providing equal opportunities for all. Make the voices of women be heard in a room full of men, help them take the next step to success, and give them the respect they deserve. When it comes to women, a MOW personality should always make it a place of giving and earning respect. When you inherit all these traits of becoming a MOW personality, you gain respect for yourself, you accomplish your dreams, and add to your organization’s betterment and growth. Remember, “You don’t have to be great to start. But you do have to start to be great.”
