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.
