Help people to help you become successful
No man is an island and this is especially true in the financial world. Treating people with respect is vital if you want them to understand and support your vision. Be trustworthy: mean what you say and say what you mean; it’s appreciated.
Ensure you get the who, what, when, where, why and how sorted. Give credit where it’s due and try to be reasonable, fair and forgiving. Goodwill builds bridges. Successful people know that success is a process; they are committed to developing strong working relationships and they are well aware of the benefits of building a broad professional network.
