Hi, How are you doing? Today I wanted to share Part 1 of 2 of an experiment I did some years ago.
The results were pretty interesting. I'm going to share the whole process with you. But use this with respect to others. Reread what I wrote in the previous posts about caring for your people and helping them.
This experiment increased the number of leaders who came to support health awareness organisations. 7 times. Yes seven.. But that wasn't the most important thing that happened. Something far more noteworthy happened as a result.
It directly allowed me to convince these leaders to spend one week of their own paid vacation times (when they normally lie on a beach) at non-profit organisations to coach and help them onsite.
Subsequent similar applications of mine and people I know have always yielded consistently outstanding results. If this sounds scientific, this is because it really is scientific.. :)
Anyhow. Here's the experiment:
It was 2007.
In my own time I was helping a health group to recruit and convince leaders and project managers from private companies. So, they came and supported some newly emerging health awareness subsidiaries in their regions. And of course in their own times too!
So I took contact approximately 30 people and asked them if they'd have come to spend a week onsite to coach and support younger people and employees in some project management, strategy, finance and human resources tasks.
Guess how successful I was. I wasn't good. Only one out of 30 individuals decided to come to us. Yes the result could have been worst, it could have been zero but something was still wrong.
So, in the next round of 30 contacts, I tried something different. I did the experiment.
I contacted other 30 individuals and asked them if they'd have had 20 minutes to review a not yet released health awareness flyers and send me their review.
I got 23 positive responses. I thought and I actually still think this was a fair result. 23 out of 30 people agreed to sacrifice their 20 minutes for public good by reading a couple of pages and summarising their input with a few bullet points.
For me what happened next was the real surprising part: One month later I contacted these 23 individuals who'd previously accepted to review the flyers and I asked them if they'd have had a week to coach a healthcare centrum onsite.
Here is the result: 7 out of 23 agreed... They all showed up. And they delivered their duties. Go figure. :)
Now let's see if you've been paying attention.
Please email me at email@example.com and tell me why you think I was able to convince these leaders to spend significant amount of their own times together with these organisations. I will read your reply and give you the answer.
Or you can jump to An Experiment to Build Your Workforce (Part 2 of 2) if you'd prefer to see the reason right away without much thinking.
By the way the answer is right in front of you. It is in the training content of one of our MBA Degree Programs. Direct link to this MBA Degree Program is:

Hi there, Have you ever wondered why only too few people are successful? Many people work hard, they constantly chase for opportunities but still they have to spend and finish their careers with unsubstantial results. This is sad, so is the truth.
Like unsuccessful people, successful people chase for opportunities too, but what makes success scarce whereas mediocrity is abundant in professional careers?Join This Discussion >>

Hi there, I hope I found you well and healthy. I am writing you about a subject that I was thinking since long time to write about it. Today is the day. :)
Are you looking for PDUs (Professional Development Units) to get or maintain a degree?
You shouldn't. Here is why? Because PDU is a byproduct of Lock-In Business Model, and this business model badly takes advantage of students.Join This Discussion >>
Hi, it's Yeliz!
Let's see if you guessed correctly. The end result of the experiment I mentioned at Part 1 of 2 was Consistency.
And when I leveraged that consistency, I was able to get more support from these leaders and managers than I ever had up until that point. Here’s why.Join This Discussion >>
Hi there, Last summer I was in Seattle.
I used this occasion to meet up with a few dozens of our alumni students in this region.
Amit, a 23 years old tall guy who studied his college in USA and made his MBA-CFP degree online with us, mentioned to me about an experiment he'd recently conducted.Join This Discussion >>

You are moving from the world of fixed nouns towards a world of fluid verbs. Within the next years you will continue taking solid things -such as a car or a jacket- and turning them into intangible verbs. Your products are becoming your services and processes. With high doses of built-in technology, your car is becoming a service, continuously updated set of benefits adapting to your own usage and feedback, fierce competition and global innovation.Join This Discussion >>
Are you good at business models?
Of course you are. We know all about business models, don’t we?
A lifetime as a consumer and almost a lifetime as a professional we all believe that we are well proficient in business models. We don’t hesitate more than a second to give our opinion if a business idea will work or not. And we are very generous to give our feedback how a company can perform better. But do we really have enough insights about business models?Join This Discussion >>
