Overcoming differences to remain business partners, friends PDF Print E-mail

Good business partnerships can lead to great things, whether it’s Ben and Jerry dishing up ice cream or Penn and Teller performing magic.

 

But sometimes partners aren’t well matched. Their personalities fail to mesh, their differing visions lead to a clash of wills and what seemed like a good idea at the beginning disintegrates quickly in a flurry of angry words and ill will.

 

It doesn’t have to be that way, though. A business partnership – like any relationship – can thrive if the right ingredients are in place.

Paul and Sara were attending a luncheon that brought together colleagues from their office as well as recently retired colleagues. Sara commented to Paul that some of the retirees seemed very happy and others were looking a bit lost – just as it was back at the office. She asked Paul if he had any idea why: she could understand the differences in the workplace, but in retirement?

 

Paul was a senior manager and had kept in touch with many of the retirees. He said that the ones who were happy, at the office and in retirement, were the ones who owned their lives. They didn’t seek the approval of others when making choices and took responsibility for the outcomes of their choices. Paul gave Sara five questions he used to help people he coached and mentored find happiness at work and in life.

Turn on the television, pick up a newspaper or visit the Internet and you will be inundated with messages about brand products.

 

Tide is a brand. Pepsi is a brand. Nike is a brand.

 

And so are you – or at least you should be.

 

Personal branding has gotten a lot more buzz in recent times and has become an important tool for everyone who wants to improve their career or business opportunities. I’m a big believer and have been touting the need for personal branding for several years. In fact, it’s the essence of my book, “Celebritize Yourself.”

 

If you open a dictionary, the word “brand” is defined as a type of product manufactured by a particular company under a particular name. These days you need to be that product.

During the initial needs analysis — whether it’s over the phone or face-to-face — you need to be sensitive to the person that’s expected to respond, especially if it’s price related.

'The Master Game' PDF Print E-mail

There once was a man named DeRopp who wrote a book titled “The Master Game.” No need to discuss his book or his philosophy here, other than to say it had to do with the shaping of one’s life and options through a lens few of us normal people have ever looked through before.

 

It brings to mind a question many people have asked me over the years about the entrepreneurial genius of Steve Jobs. What did he know that the rest of us did not? My answer was simply that Jobs didn’t actually know more than the rest of us; he simply cared more.
