I had the pleasure of interviewing Mohamed Massaquoi, an organizational psychologist and speaker. He is passionate about helping high-performing teams achieve more and he is going to talk about what we can do to grow our book of business, relationship ecosystems, and career.
Mo asked Mohamed
“What’s your personal system to keep learning and to keep growing your impact?
"I’m trying to eliminate failure points. In sports, especially in the NFL, you practice more than you play. The reason is you have to function at such a high level when it is time to perform that you have to get all the mistakes out in a practice form. You don’t want to practice things in front of seventy thousand or one million people watching. That’s not the time to do it. I think something that we all get guilty of is that we are in play mode at work sometimes so much that we are not carving out time to develop. So for me, I try to take inventory of what has taken place, and there are certain strategic days that are blocked out of my calendar in three-month increments to where I can have heavy down time and developmental time. And in addition I am taking inventory of my week. I am meticulous and jotting notes down, trying to track and measure everything. If you don’t measure it, you lose it. So what went well, what didn’t go well, what I need to follow up on, etc. Just so that I know where I am at all the time.”
