Mini-Quiz: People Want to be Special

by Ron Kurtus (revised 14 Janaury 2014)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. If a child comes in second place in a contest, what should you say?

You are a loser, because you didn't win

Great job! You tried your best.

Maybe you should try something else

2. Why should you allow a subordinate at work make a decision?

It helps make him feel he is contributing

You shouldn't, because he might get a big head

So there is someone to blame when things go wrong

3. How do people respond to those who make them feel special?

They like having them around

They feel superior and will take advantage

They distrust the person for being so nice

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Valuable Champion. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
