People Skills Are Key
Business runs on relationships: company to employee, brand to customer and partner to partner. During the last few years, emotions are frayed throughout a company’s value chain, creating a business opportunity for people centric companies. The key to building and keeping relationships is emotional talent: confidence, friendliness, empathy and authenticity.
The Power Of One Person
One person, regardless of role or rank, can change the world. Business history is filled with stories of staffers, sales reps, mid level managers and even factory workers that created change inside their company – which solved problems, created opportunities and inspired entire industries.
Do Well By Doing Good
If you grow everyone in your business life by sharing knowledge or networking, you will enjoy success over the long haul. Why? People reciprocate and pay it forward. If companies help employees prosper, retention is high and recruiting costs are low. When they find synergistic ways to assist local communities in need, they generate local goodwill and employee satisfaction. Done right, going green is good for the bottom line, and critical to winning the war for talent.
