Inspiration. Sales. Good Business.
This video is an all time favorite and for good reason. Mr. Rogers shaped children’s television and made us all want to be “good neighbors”. Mr. Rogers knew how to tell his story and knew how to get others so emotionally involved they’d do whatever they could to help. Watch this video in it’s entirety – you’ll be glad you did.
Sales people, managers, CEOs, world leaders and the like, could take a lesson or two from this gentleman’s fine example. B2B and all salespeople can really take something from this by noting how to persuade and “sell” in such an approachable, respectful manner, while staying on course to reach your objective.
Mr. Rogers respect to his audience is incredible and how intimidating this must have been. This was in 1969 and he was concerned about the mental health and welfare of children then!! My what vision he had and what a legacy of innocence he left! We can learn from his delivery, his tethered passion and conviction. Mr. Rogers left the world a better place. May we all strive to do the same.
“If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.”
— Fred Rogers
