Killer communities have great relationships
Everyone’s talking about building a community these days. Why? Because we all know that relationships are important. The key question: how to turbocharge relationships, especially if you’re not the perky “people person” (guilty as charged). According to Maribeth Kuzemski — one of my favorite people — having a killer toolkit makes all the difference. Her newest book The Connectors: How the World’s Most Successful Businesspeople Build Relationships and Win Clients for Life (Wiley, September 2009) has uncovered the details, the tangible how to’s of creating better business relationships. My personal favorite: how to be a connector even if you’ve never been a people person. Makes me want to get out of the bat cave and make some friends…
Seriously, Maribeth is doing one of those promotions, so if you order the book today you get tons of goodies. Go to www.theconnectorsbook.com to order and get your cool, free stuff. And I’m drilling down on the strategic use of communities in my upcoming Here’s the Deal call on October 13th. Here’s the link if you want to join the fun: www.sullivanspeaker.com/HTDcommunity.htm
