Abe Sorock is changing the world -- he's the resident and runs the Moishe House Beijing, and he's bringing together very talented and amazing people from the worlds of international business, government, and philanthropy. Professionally, he's the founder and director of Atlas China, which providers staffing and consulting in HR throughout China.
To promote his GiveGetWin deal which is a 1-on-1 session about developing leadership and throwing world-class events, he sat down with me to share his exceptional and brilliant thinking and the methods he uses to bring people together -- and perhaps more crucially, how to become the kind of person who takes charge and sees yourself as a leader co-creating the experience of yourself and everyone in your world.
"The Paradigm Shift: Changing The Fabric Of Your World" by Abe Sorock, as told to Sebastian Marshall
The first step in leading people and putting together great groups is to have a paradigm shift in who you are.
The shift happened for me when I was a student at the Hopkins Nanjing Center. I realized -- if I saw myself as a student paying transactional fee and getting a diploma, I'd behave differently than if I saw myself as part of the fabric of an organization who will be looked on by future classes.
INTERNAL SCORECARD #5
This is the fifth week of me publishing an internal scorecard. Last week, we discussed aiming for a 70% hit rate on short-term goals, and gearing down if you missed to focus on fundamentals.
This week was a transition from that, with a lot of things to accomplish before transiting, but nothing particularly too crazy.
ON TRANSITING RELATIVELY QUICKLY
It's basically unavoidable that if you're traveling at a fast pace, you lose productive days to "travel days." You also potentially accumulate fatigue and jet lag, even if you're a veteran traveler.
