Teams of People
People relationships are the underpinnings of leadership. They are the fastenings, often unseen, that multiply your efforts and create exponential results, far exceeding what you could ever produce alone. These very key relationships create a sophisticated network, interconnecting you to a variety of resources.
So who is in your network? Your mentor(s), the people you work and do business with, obviously. What about the people who influence them? Hmm...think beyond your circle of friends and influence. Get out of your shell. Join your local chamber. Commit to opportunities to serve in your community. Bottom line: Get to know more people and thereby, build a viable network, your very own bridge to success. Don’t allow your previous success to inhibit you from asking for help. People want to work on high leverage activities with high producers.
This leads me of a powerful message: No matter how brilliant your mind or strategy, if you are playing a solo game, you will always lose out to a team.
