How a SMILE Helped Me Deal with 800 Employees
I had a job which I grew to hate.
Managing 800 Employees.
Many of these folks HATED each other.
It got so bad I had a Weekly meeting with most of them.
Where I LISTENED.
Crazy, but this Reduced FIGHTS by 90%.
Plus I Got Janitors to VOLUNTEER to Test New cleaning Supplies. Then REPORT
BACK to the GROUP.
Had S*Alesmen as GUEST SPEAKERS.
MY SMILE POINT.
To Get Myself in a Higher Energy.
HAPPY FRAME of Mind on the WAY to work.
SMILE - SMILE - SMILE for 15 Minutes While DRIVING.
It made all the difference.
Everyone Else was Doom and GLOOM.
Not a Little UNHappy.
PICTURE 800 EMPLOYEES Literally Racing Each other to be the FIRST
ONES Down The road on the way home.
I was Chipper and Cheerful.
Streams of Problems and Trouble Just Rolled off me like water off a DUCKS BACK.
I - A kid took at ax. Cut holes in his Apartment walls so he could run
his Stereo wires from room to room.
II - Another IDIOT Used a Staple Gun to Nail a Parachute to his Dorm Celling
in concentric Circles.
ME? I SMILED while I wrote up the Bill.
III - Almost NIGHTLY - Some maROON in the boys dorm would KICK the water Fountain off the brick wall. Flood 3 Floors.
(I Set Up a Warehouse System.
Persuaded my boss to B*uy a Wet/Dry Vacuum. One Phone
call and I had a Janitor come out. Get the Wet/Dry Vac out of the warehouse. And Clean up the flood. I STAYED HOME.)
IV - Girls Heard GHOSTS - Demanded to be moved out of their Apartment.
I heard BIRDS in the wall.
I found Pigeons that had fallen from a hole in the Roof Soffet
down behind the Sheet Rock in the Kitchen wall.
HAMMERED a Hole.
Put on Gloves. GRABBED the Pigeons.
NO MORE GHOSTS.
UNTIL I had my Marketing Biz
ready to JUMP over to.
Then I Quit.
Somehow a SMILE - on your FACE impacts Your EMOTIONS.
Simple but Really Powerful.
