One of the basic assumptions behind my work in the Progressive Managers’ Network is that excellent performance depends on excellent relationships. Relationships that are characterised by:
- 2-way communication
- creativity and innovation from everyone
- development and progress
And still the most common objection that I face in my training? “Mike I haven’t got time to spend building relationships. I just need to get them to do as I ask.” The longer term pursuit of excellence is consistently hi-jacked for the short term acceptance of mediocrity.
Great post here from Carmine Coyote which provides some clues about why getting relationships right really matters.
