RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE MOST VALUABLE ASSET: In today’s business world, it is more important than ever to have strong relationships. This is something that Todd Davis of FranklinCovey understands well. In his book Get Better: 15 Proven Practices to Build Effective Relationships at Work, Davis argues that it is not the people within an organization that are its most valuable asset, but rather the relationships between those people.
What good is a group of talented individuals if they cannot work together effectively? It is the strong relationships between employees, bosses, and clients that create a successful business.
In order to be successful, we have to start with a strong relationship with ourselves. After all, self-awareness is one of the most important leadership skills. If we can’t understand and manage our own emotions, how can we hope to lead others effectively?
That’s why I believe that developing a strong relationship with ourselves is one of the most important things we can do for our careers. When we take the time to get to know ourselves – our strengths, our weaknesses, our values – we set ourselves up for success in all areas of life.
If you’re not sure where to start, here are a few suggestions:
– Spend some time each day reflecting on your goals and how you’re progressing towards them.
– Make a list of your values and consider how they guide your decisions.
– Keep a journal to track your thoughts, emotions, and experiences.
– Seek out feedback from others and be open to constructive criticism.
By taking the time to nurture our relationship with ourselves, we can become our best possible selves – and set ourselves up for success in all areas of life. Todd Davis has an incredibly strong point when he states that people are not an organization’s most valuable asset, but rather it’s the relationship between those people that is your company’s most valuable asset.”
