Rule 63: Act one step ahead

Nigeria’s Billionaire Publisher & Politician, Dr. Orji  Uzor Kalu 
So,
we’ve got you dressing one step up and talking one step up, now you have to act
one step up.  I know, I know, it’s all
too much, too hard, too difficult.  Who
said this was going to be easy? Not me, pal, I told you right from the word go
that this was going to be hard – harder in fact than just doing the job like
normal people. 

Being a Rules
Player takes more effort, requires more attention to detail and is generally
more like hard work than hard work. But the results are fantastic.  In fact being a Rules Player
automatically qualifies you for promotion – if you can be a Rules
Player you deserve to be promoted.  It’s
a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy. 
Carrying out the Rules requires strength of
character, will power, determination, honesty, courage, experience, great
talent, dedication, drive, nerve and charisma – if you’ve got all these you’ll
be promoted anyway.

So,
act one step up.  Look at the way your
boss enters the office.  Notice
anything?  Watch the way they answer the
phone, talk to staff, entertain customers, hold their pen, hang up their coat,
open their office door, sit down, and stand up–anything they do.  I bet you’ll notice that they move
differently from, say the office junior or the maintenance team or the sales
force or the marketing folk or the PR people.

“CARRYING
OUT THE RULES REQUIRES STRENGTH OF CHARACTER, WILL POWER, DETERMINATION,
HONESTY, COURAGE, EXPERIENCE, GREAT TALENT, DEDICATION, DRIVE, NERVE AND
CHARISMA”.

Acting
one step up requires you to:
·                   
Be
more certain of yourself
·                   
Be
more mature
·                   
Be
more confident
You
have to be languid and suave and sophisticated – no, no, not swaggering or
aggressive.  A simple exercise – do you
have your own office?  Do people knock on
your door? What do you say?  A mild ‘Come in, please?’ or a one step up ‘Come’.  The higher you go the less time you have to waste.  You get slicker and quicker, sleeker and
fitter.  You don’t have time to waffle or
use long expressions – a simple ‘Come’
is more expedient.  You too have to be
expedient.  That’s the secret. Next.
