Bull or Bear? | March 2018

Are you a bull or bear?

BULL OR BEAR?

“Sales goals without corresponding relationship analysis are meaningless.”

A recent survey completed by Candace Bennett & Associates reported that 89% of executives believe that “relationships” are the key to their success. These executives, however, are only realizing 45% of the relational capital value from relationships. Why? Prioritization and connection to goals are critical. Only 5% of executives connect relationships to goals. They develop strategies for all aspects of their businesses to ensure success, but do not leverage the most meaningful element — a strong relationship-goal connection.

OPINION: BULL
Connecting goals to relationships and then intentionally strengthening those relationships will measurably increase top line, bottom line, and shareholder value in any enterprise.

Many business people seek to accumulate hundreds of digital relationships, but how do trust and business performance develop from your […]
