Get Off The Bench: The Three Founding Principles
1. When you need a relationship, it’s too late to build it. You have to create and foster relationships before they become necessary.
2. It is more blessed to give than to receive. Relationships are about give and take. Too often we take and don’t give as much in return.
3. Trust is the currency of all relationships. Without trust and integrity, relations
hips, and therefore, a true network, cannot exist.
Successful strategic networking is an art form to be mastered, and requires critical
inherent character traits – loyalty, respect, integrity, honesty and sensitivity among them – that can never falter. The art of networking is essentially the art of human relations. Get Off The Bench is the only playbook you’ll ever need to build, nurture, leverage and maintain your network, and by extension all of your relationships. Don’t live your life on the sidelines. Get off the bench today.
