Learn to be well-liked: Read the Likeability Factor

Everyone on the planet has read Carnegie’s, “How to Win Friends and Influence People” — haven’t they? Seriously though…If you haven’t read that classic, pick it up tomorrow.

For a nice change of pace, however, pick up Tim Sanders’, “The Likeability Factor“.

The Likeability Factor touches on this one simple fact: The more you are liked—or the higher your likeability factor—the happier your life will be. Sanders touches on enhancing 4 critical areas of your personality:

  1. Friendliness: Are you really giving off an aura that says, “I am friendly”? Or are you subconsciously pushing people away by your actions?
  2. Relevance: It is one thing to have someone tell you they like your shirt (yes, this is friendly). How about being extremely relevant towards other by tapping into their wants and needs on a personal or professional level? Think: How can I help this person pursue their dreams?
  3. Empathy: Can you recognize someone else’s feelings? Instead of saying, “I know how you feel, I’ve been there.” Go the next level by being there on a consistent basis when that person needs a listener and helper.
  4. Realness: We all know a ‘fake’ when we see one. Be authentic in thought, word, and deed. The smallest things can have the biggest impact. Keep your appointments, promises, and committments. If you do, you will stand out from the crowd.

There’s nothing truly revolutionary in this book, but I found it a sterling reminder and a good read for anyone who is interested in becoming more likeable.

  1. Good stuff, Dan. I also like Tim Sanders’ work and check his blog regularly for interesting insights.The problem with so many leaders – especially young ones – is two-fold. First, they spend so much time and energy on trying to be “liked,” that they fail to lead. The fact is, there are many things that leaders must be prepared to do that may decrease their “likeability” score.The other problem with young leaders is that they put too much energy into being “liked” and miss point #4: they are not authentic. Leaders who can do the other three points (friendly, relevant, empathetic) without becoming a charicature of themselves…will be liked…both as a person and as a leader.

  14. Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.
