Anyone can be a star

Look for the opportunities to shine in your business, or the people in your team that are already shining. KIRSTY DUNPHEY

I love this clip…


… (even though I sadly found out it’s not genuine and was part of a Gatorade advert that never went to air).

The reason I love this clip though is that it reminds me that in any group, organisation or company it doesn’t have to be the highest paid, the highest ranked or the loudest that gets to be the star on a given day.

The junior waiter who notices a restaurant critic eating dinner during that night’s service can be the star. The receptionist who wows the huge prospective client on the phone can be the star. The ball girl at the baseball game could be the star.

My point… If you’re working your way up through your organisation, look for ways to shine and then be humble – if you work with good people, your work won’t go unnoticed.

And if you’re in a position where you often get to be the star (you’re the business owner, top sales person, manager) – look for the ball girl in your organisation and make them feel like a star when they deserve it.
