In a list that includes some of the most impactful people in the world, such as President Vladimir Putin, humanitarians Bill and Melinda Gates and even the Pope, it’s a little bit surprising to meet the name of someone whose job is “the host of a night talk-show”. But that’s exactly what happened when “Fortune” magazine placed Jimmy Fallon among the greatest 50 leaders of the world.
Yet, hot was it possible? Simply because Fallon loves people, and people love him in their turn. Probably Paul McCartney described him the best: “He’s a big fan of people with the same enthusiasm like them, but who happens to have his own talk-show”.
Here are three principles followed by Fallon, which you can use for yourself and for your business:
- Be authentic
Carmine Gallo, the author of “Talk Like TED”, said: “An original personification takes hours of work, digging into the depths of your soul and choosing the most adequate words, to optimally represent your feelings towards the subject in order to get their maximum impact, making yourself sure, in the same time, that non-verbal communication – the gestures, the facial expressions, the body language – supports the message that you wish to communicate.”
Want to be more authentic? Be open to new ideas, to new people… and especially to your real personality. Experiencing the world by having an open approach reduces prejudices and fear, which are the real brakes of the originality. In business, this means not only sharing your mission, passion and vocation, but also dedicating time in order to really listen other people.
- Focus on relationships
Although seems to be simple, many of us find it difficult to pay attention to other people. But it’s not Fallon’s case! Authentic relationships are the ones that make fans to be devoted and Fallon’s fame, in the middle of the night, was based on his ability to develop them. Having a natural ability to connect to anybody, the attention he pays to relationships cannot be ignored. He knows a conversation builds a relation and, in front of an audience, the relation extends to the whole room. How can he create relationships with clients, especially in business area? Personalization is the key. From emails specially based on previous experiences with the customer, you can optimize the whole experience that the consumer has by interacting with your company. 75 percent of the studied cases in marketing, according to a survey released by GetResponse, have attested that personalization has “a significant impact” in maintaining the relationship with the customer. These are strong arguments for which you should develop your relationships.
- Socialize on virtual platforms
Social media means for Fallon to instantly connect to his audience, and his presence in the virtual environment is enviable. Every week, he creates a new hashtag, inviting spectators to participate to the show by sharing their experiences. Fallon’s ability to keep up with social networking platforms caused countless hilarious moments, millions of people laughing at his jokes.
