Law 15 – Master The Art of Building And Maintaining Relationships
EXTRA-ordinary leaders are collaborative. They know that no man is an island and that success can only be achieved through others. They can identify and collaborate with who they need and who needs them
“Sometimes, idealistic people are put off by the whole business of networking as something tainted by flattery and the pursuit of selfish advantage. But virtue in obscurity is rewarded only in Heaven. To succeed in this world, you have to be known to people” – Sonia Sotomayor
EXTRA-ordinary Leaders are not lone heroes, they deliver extraordinary results through other people. They Build great teams around themselves. They have the right people surround them.
They select their collaborators based on aligned vision, values and beliefs not based on skills. They know that you can train skills, but you can’t train values and beliefs. Are you an extraordinary leader? Do you want to be an extraordinary leader? Don’t ignore the power of networking and maintaining good relationships… But don’t just focus on meeting people and taking from them; give even before you get.
“One of the most powerful networking practices is to provide immediate value to a new connection. This means the moment you identify a way to help someone, take action” – Lewis Howes
