[00:03:55] Roy Heintz: Roy. Oh, it's great to be here, Scott. Thank you so much for the [00:04:00] opportunity.
[00:04:00] Scott Maderer: Absolutely. I'm looking forward to talking to you today.
[00:04:03] So Roy you've had an impact over the years on, at a number of different levels and for a number of different organizations. So what would you say is the key to identifying where you want to have an impact? A lot of folks it's I want to have an impact. I want to do something. W we talked last week about getting good at something to be able to influence others and all of that.
[00:04:28] What about the person that's sitting there going, I don't even know what, where I want to have an impact or what I want to do or what that should look like for me. What advice would you give them?
[00:04:37] Roy Heintz: Again, over the last couple of weeks, we've talked to in great detail about what leadership is and an impact and influence leadership is not a title.
[00:04:47] Leadership is inspiration. It's motivation, it's influence it's impact. So aren't there people around you that you can inspire [00:05:00] that maybe they see you and say, wow you did great with this. And to say, I know, but I saw you do this. And you did that really well. And you can achieve what I've achieved down the road.
[00:05:18] And I heard a speaker in an interview on a podcast recently, and he said that a friend of his fathers one day looked at him and said, Young man, you have potential. That's all he said, Scott, but that person speaking to him and saying young man, you have potential inspired him to do great things and to have an in tremendous influence impact for some people it's motivation.
[00:05:48] Aren't there people around us, even coworkers we've talked over the last couple of weeks about how employees are disengaged, how the workplace isn't this productive. But if we have a hard to be the best [00:06:00] that we can be, and we're working really hard, and we're trying to do a great job with this product with this project.
[00:06:06] And one of our coworkers is lazy or they're not pulling their weight on the project to pull that person aside and say, look, you're a really talented, and this project needs you. And I want to encourage you to bring it every day and you've got to have a better attitude and you've got to put forth great, greater amounts of effort.
[00:06:28] So to motivate that person, to understand that their name's going to be on. Project literally and figuratively and to own it influence impact. All those words are action words. And that's when you're looking for who I can pour into, those are words that think about now it's a heart condition is our heart condition to serve.
[00:06:55] One of the things we talk about, I've talked about as a basketball coach. Now I talk as [00:07:00] a business leader is it's got to it's we more than me, we more than me. So do I have a desire to serve others or do I have blinders on? And it's all about me. And that distinction is really a key. And when you have a heart to serve others, I find that heart condition opens our eyes.
[00:07:23] And our ears to be able to serve others. And when we talk about influence, impact, inspiration, motivation, again, I go back to the fact that just holding a door open for someone looking them in the eyes, smiling and say, how are you today can have a tremendous impact. It is not a ginormous thing that you got to do.
[00:07:46] It's the smallest of things that can have an exponential ginormous impact. And we might not ever know about that, but it can have an incredible impact on someone's life.
[00:07:59] Scott Maderer: [00:08:00] So someone's heard that and they said to themselves, I do want to make an impact. I do want to make a, what I call a dent in the universe.
[00:08:09] Whatever that means for them. What are some principles or resources that they need to focus on to really be able to do that?
[00:08:17] Roy Heintz: I think the first thing is that everybody has to understand that when God created us, he put greatness inside of us. And I think it's our responsibility to discover what that is, and then to grow and develop that greatness.
[00:08:35] Goes back to what we talked about in the previous episode last week about stewardship. And it's understanding that I have this and if I grow and develop it that I can now use it and then to have that heart to serve and to serve others. Oh, how do I do that? Here are the things that I have.
[00:08:56] To be able to serve that person and [00:09:00] then to choose, to serve them, to demonstrate love and care and the desire to influence and impact their life in any way that we can. So really it starts with that stewardship idea again, that God gave us gifts and talents and abilities and skills for us to use.
[00:09:21] But it's our responsibility to grow and develop on, to be used, to serve others and influence and impact them in any way that we can with the people that come across our path on a daily basis.
[00:09:36] Scott Maderer: So Roy, if I could invent a machine and managed to pick you up from today and transport you into the far future, maybe a hundred, 150 years, and you were able to look back on your life, what impact do you hope you've had on the world?
[00:09:53] Roy Heintz: I think I started answering that question when I was turning 50.
[00:09:57] And and I realized that when I get [00:10:00] called home, I hope that I would have left behind a strong enough. Legacy of impact behind me, that's really a heartfelt desire. And I think each of us have to understand that we do not know when our last day on this earth is going to be. And so we should live accordingly.
[00:10:19] One of the things I say in some of my talks and my writings is this is not a practice life. This is the life we've been given. And we should all want to maximize it in such a way that we can serve and love others to leave this positive legacy behind us. And, the one thing, my mother, when I was young, I think I might've been like maybe a 10, 12 year old cut something out of the newspaper.
[00:10:48] And I had it in my wallet and it was from Walt, Ralph Waldo, Emerson. And he said to laugh often and love much to win the respect [00:11:00] of intelligent people and the affection of children to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others.
[00:11:13] To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition to know that even one life has breathed easier because you've lived, this is to have succeeded. And I think I love my mother had an incredible impact. My both my parents did, but the fact that God.
[00:11:36] Led her to cut that out of a newspaper and to give it to me. And that I was smart enough to put in my wallet and the reason before anybody thinks I'm quoting that is I actually have that printed and on my desk here at the office. And I keep that in front of me because it's a less than subtle reminder of what success looks.
[00:11:57] So many people in this world. And [00:12:00] again, I've had the privilege of working with elite performers in business and sports. So many people look at success as being fast cars, big homes, a lot of money. And we can't forget that it's really our legacy and the life that we live to serve, influence and impact others really defines our success.
[00:12:23] Scott Maderer: So what's coming next for. You as you continue on this journey to living out your call and impacting the world.
[00:12:29] Roy Heintz: I'm really excited about what we're doing with this company here in Atlanta, that I have a privilege to help lead. We're seeing the culture grow more positively. We're seeing a greater engagement with our employees and we're seeing great growth.
[00:12:44] So that's one thing I'm really happy that I'm, I have the opportunity to influence and impact other. Through this book, the book has been really received very positively and it's impacting others. And that was my heart for writing it. I really wanted to raise up stronger [00:13:00] leaders that can lead in their home that can lead in their church, that can lead in their business, that can lead in their community.
[00:13:05] And I'm excited that with the opportunity to speak and look forward to do even more for groups and organizations and teams. That that have a heart to teach and influence others by being better leaders. So I would say that those are three huge things for me right now.
[00:13:22] Scott Maderer: You can find out more about Roy and his speaking and you can book him email@example.com. Of course I'll have links to that over in the show notes. Roy, is there anything else you'd like to share with the listener?
[00:13:36] Roy Heintz: I'd like to thank them for listening today and encourage them that if I said something that really struck a chord with them, any in any way, Don't just put it away, but act on it and act on it today.
[00:13:49] A lot of times we, if we're listening to learn and I love to listen to podcasts, including this. I listened to this podcast and learn from it. But you only learn by taking what you [00:14:00] hear and applying it quickly. And so I'd encourage you to do that. If the listener hasn't bought my book yet, I'd appreciate it.
[00:14:06] If they'd consider doing that on Amazon and then read it, apply it to their lives as leaders, and then write a review. If the book meant something to them. And then if you're as part of an organization that would like me to speak to your group or in any way, as you said, just reach out to me through my website because I'd love to speak to your group.
