Turn the Ordinary Into the Extraordinary

Have you ever noticed how some people can turn simple tasks into something amazing? That’s what I mean by “extraordinary.” It’s taking ordinary actions and making them exceptional.

The Power of Extraordinary

Extraordinary means more than just standing out and making a difference. It also means getting ahead. It’s about turning the “impossible into possible” and making the ideal a reality.

Imagine turning a regular idea into something so unique and valuable that it becomes a “purple cow” – something truly remarkable and unforgettable.

In the workplace, being extraordinary means becoming the Most Valuable Professional. You become the trusted advisor to both your bosses and your subordinates. If you’re in the government, you’re the person who makes Completed Staff Work the norm.

When I conduct leadership training or team-building workshops, I see how these extraordinary qualities can transform individuals and entire teams.

Think about companies like Jollibee or Ayala – they started with simple ideas and turned them into something extraordinary by focusing on excellence and innovation.

Embracing a Growth Mindset

Before Carol Dweck made the term “growth mindset” famous, we already understood the concept in our local saying: “Kapag gusto, may paraan; kapag ayaw, maraming dahilan.” This captures both growth and fixed mindsets perfectly.

A growth mindset isn’t just about trying again and again until you succeed. It’s about changing your paradigms and thinking bigger – 10x, 100x, or even 1000x.

In my experience, shifting to a growth mindset means encouraging your team to not just change their methods but also their outlook.

During my workshops, I challenge managers and supervisors to think strategically. It’s not enough to improve incrementally; we need to aim for exponential growth. This shift in thinking can transform managers into a strategic leaders.

Fostering Innovation and Creativity

Innovation and creativity are at the heart of extraordinary results. Create a workspace where people feel safe to share their ideas, no matter how crazy they might seem.

During team-building exercises, I encourage teams to brainstorm without fear of judgment. This often leads to innovative solutions that wouldn’t have come up in a more restrictive environment.

For example, a team I worked with at a local tech company came up with a new customer service strategy that significantly boosted satisfaction rates.

Leading by Example

As leaders, we must model the behavior we want to see. Be a role model – show your team how to work hard and be kind. If you lead with honesty and always do your best, your team will follow.

In value integrity and consistency. When I see a manager demonstrating these qualities, their team naturally steps up their game.

Empowering and Celebrating Teams

Empowerment means giving your team the power to make decisions. Trust them with important tasks and celebrate their successes. This makes people feel valued and motivated.

In one of my keynote speeches, I shared a story about a manager who started recognizing even small achievements during team meetings. This simple act led to a more motivated and engaged team, driving overall success.

Effective Communication

Clear and open communication is essential to achieving extraordinary results. But communication isn’t just about informing; it’s about transforming. That’s the premise of my book, Speak & Change the World.

When I teach public speaking, I help managers see things from the paradigm of their audiences. The goal is to inspire, to get people to “dream the impossible dream,” and to show them how to make their dreams happen.

Every time you stand and speak, you have the opportunity to do something extraordinary.

Resilience and Adaptability

Resilience and adaptability help teams stay strong and move forward, even when things get tough. The pandemic has been a harsh teacher, showing us how fragile life and dreams can be. Yet, we’ve also witnessed incredible resilience.

Companies like Canva emerged as pandemic winners because they adapted and pivoted. And there are many more examples. The truth is that most of our “extraordinary dreams” are already happening somewhere. We need to learn from these examples and apply those lessons to our own challenges.

J.K. Rowling wrote “Harry Potter” when she was struggling, but she believed in her story and kept going. Now, it’s one of the most loved book series in the world.

Another example is Steve Jobs, who started Apple in a garage and turned it into a company that changed the world.

Turning the ordinary into the extraordinary is about believing in yourself and your team, trying new things, and learning from every experience.

Extraordinary isn’t about doing something huge all at once – it’s about making every small action count.

You can make the ordinary extraordinary!

Strategic Leadership

Everyone wants to be a good leader, and every company is on the lookout for people who can really make a difference.

A lot of times, though, the way we teach leadership is too complicated. Many leadership training programs try to squeeze everyone into the same mold, which can stifle what makes each leader unique.

This one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t usually work out well.

But the world is changing fast, thanks to new technology that lets us do more with less. This change calls for a new kind of leader: quick to adapt, full of new ideas, and ready to shake things up.

Extraordinary leaders make things simple. They focus on clearing up confusion and getting everyone pulling in the same direction. They don’t need to know it all or do it all themselves. Instead, they’re great at bringing out the best in everyone.

What does this mean for you?

It means that to be a good leader today, you need to learn how to cut through the clutter and focus on what really helps your team succeed.

This way of leading is simple, it gets results, and honestly, it just makes sense. It’s all about getting rid of the unnecessary stuff and concentrating on what truly matters.

Forget the old complicated methods and start focusing on what you can do to help your team thrive.
