The Way I Work: Paul English of Kayak, Page 2

by on 02/07/2010

When I am hiring, I try to get people to accept the job before I tell them about salary or title. I promise to make that person dramatically more productive, and that working for Kayak will be the most fun job he’s ever had. I need two things in return: a promise to strive to be the absolute best you can be. And that you will be an energy amplifier — someone people are excited to work with.

I was reading the February issue of Inc. magazine on the plane today and this excerpt really struck me … especially the phrase, “And that you will be an energy amplifier – someone people are excited to work with.” I love that term – energy amplifier! I can think of at least a dozen people in my life who are energy amplifiers and that is certainly the way I want to serve the world.

We have all had our share of energy vampires – the people who drain us of our own energy when they leak their negative energy all over us and suck the life right out of us. How refreshing to have a new term to focus on.

Please go out into the world this week with your energy amplified and let me know what kind of results you gain from the experience.
