Jon Vroman is a keynote speaker, coach, and the co-founder of Front Row Foundation. He is the host of the Front Row Factor Podcast, and the #1 bestselling author of “The Front Row Factor: Transform Your Life with The Art of Moment Making.” Today, he is going to teach us how we can create moments that will deeply connect us to the people we care about most: moments that we, and the people we love, will remember forever.
In this interview, Jon begins by describing what moment making is, and shares a touching story from the Front Row Foundation. He explains why moment making is important, and gives some examples of how we can create meaningful moments in our lives. He talks about consciously creating the future, experiencing the present, and celebrating the past. Jon also emphasizes the importance of how we communicate with others. He explains how the ratio of positive to negative comments is strongly correlated with the health of our relationships, both in business and in our personal lives.
Jon then provides a number of examples of moment making in the business world. He talks about going the extra mile and giving personalized thank you notes to customers, as well as the importance of pictures and gift giving. Jon goes on to discuss how to gain clarity on our values and priorities. He recommends periodic journaling and self-inquiry to evaluate and reevaluate our values. Jon also emphasizes the importance of living a life of service and giving. He talks about how to figure out what people want and commit to helping them reach their dreams and goals.
Chris discusses the idea that we nurture certain values out of people. He also talks about how people want to be seen for who they are. Jon then explains how we can honor who people are at their core, while also amplifying certain values or recognizing when they’re selling themselves short. He gives two examples, one about himself, and one about his son and his parenting, to illustrate this point. Finally, Jon discusses why we need to be mindful of how we show up for people. As a last insight, he encourages us to get out there and recognize the power we have to make moments.
