Networking Tip: How can I become a better … ?

Another post about someone I saw on the main stage of the NSA convention in New York.

I have to admit that I was a bit sceptic about Marshall Goldsmith. Probably because he was “hyped” a bit too much in the last months as the coach of the Fortune 500 CEO’s when his book What Got You Here Won’t Get You There came out. I still don’t know about how much about that is true, but I do know one thing now: he is GOOD !

It was a very inspiring session with a few simple, but effective exercises.

One of them is: ask your customer how you can become a better supplier.

You can make several variations on this one:
– Ask your life partner how you can become a better partner.
– Ask your employees how you can become a better boss or ask your boss how you can become a better employee.
– Ask your parents how you can become a better child or ask your children how you can become a better parent.

This is a very powerful question. And an excellent one to improve business and personal relationships.

So, my question to you is: who are you going to ask this question?

I know it can be a very intimate issue, but if you have any experiences with this that you want to share, please

post them here or send me an e-mail.

Have a great asking day !
