I had such a great time chatting with George Evjen and JoeQuinn on their Out From the Cube podcast! They really brought out some gems that I want to share with you.

George got us started by talking about energy and how much he notices that some people who suck the energy out of people and others who walk into a room and just get that energy going. He asked why I think it’s important for leaders to harness human energy. Here’s what I told him, “Teams, businesses, and organizations only succeed or fail to the extent that they harness human energy and people potential.”

It’s true. And the 6 Facets of Human Needs™ provide a framework for being able to harness that energy and nurture our teams to stronger outcomes.

George also told us a fascinating story about his 10year-old son and how he notices these same needs in him and his sports endeavors. Which makes sense, because these needs aren’t specific to business team performance, they’re universal human needs that we’re born with and never lose.

They also got me to deliver some quick tips on how to leverage the power of each of the 6 Facets, so there are action steps leaders can take immediately.
