As leaders, we often go above and beyond to help others. Often times, we end up giving our knowledge and expertise away for free.
Now, I am all about helping my team. Because, not only is it the right thing to do, it also benefits me in the process. It’s a “win-win” situation.
I often get emails and messages from people not on my team saying “can you show me how to do XYZ”. And, at first, I thought that’s what I was supposed to do, to get people to know, like and trust me. I would stop what I was doing, and teach them what they wanted to know, in the hopes that they would do business with me or join my team in the future.
I later discovered, that it was actually hurting my value in the marketplace. Because, once that person learned what they needed to know, that was it.
Your knowledge and experience is worth way more than you realize. Don’t de-value what you know by giving everything away.
