As the daughter of a career Air Force officer, keynote speaker and author, Lauren Schieffer, CSP, gained a profound independence and ability to adapt to changing circumstances.
The lessons she learned have helped her make smart decisions and overcome adversity with humility and a sense of humor. In her upcoming book, “Colonels of Wisdom: A Daughter’s Reflection On Significance,” Lauren combines quotes from “The Colonel” with heartfelt and engaging stories, highlighting the subtle, but crucial difference between mere success and true significance.
Significance is essential to building a legacy, growing leaders and changing a corporate culture. – Lauren Schieffer
In my video interview with Ms. Schieffer she explains, “With significance, once you have effectively impacted someone else’s life it’s done and then you move on to ‘Who else can I help? Who else can I benefit? Who else can I impact?’ That is something that that never leaves you and once you’ve done it, once is enough, right, but it’s enough that it encourages you to go do it again and again.”
People do business with people they like and trust. – Lauren Schieffer
Lauren continues, “It obviously feels good when you’ve helped somebody else and that’s why I believe that people who focus on significance first end up being successful because you’ve heard it a hundred times—people do business with people they like and trust—and If I see someone putting the greater good ahead of their own profit or their own personal needs I’m gonna choose to do business with them, which is going to make them successful, as well.
You cannot chase success and end up with significance. But, you can choose significance and end up with success. – Lauren Schieffer
Enjoy my interview with Lauren Schieffer, CSP as we discuss how to make a meaningful difference in the lives of your team, customers and business.
Lauren’s “Colonels of Wisdom” will help you transcend mere success to develop true significance.
