Competence is one of the keys to career and life success that I discuss in several of my books: Straight Talk for Success; Your Success GPS; and 42 Rules to Jumpstart Your Professional Success. If you want to succeed you need to develop four basic, but important competencies: 1) creating positive personal impact; 2) becoming a consistently high performer; 3) dynamic communication skills; and 4) becoming interpersonally competent.
Relationship building is an important key to interpersonal competence. Relationships are all about WE, not me. In an increasingly contentious world in which civility seems to be a thing of the past, the simple concept of “WE” seems to be lost. However, my colleagues at the Creating WE Institute are trying to do something about this.
Today, September 17 is the Amazon.com launch date for 42 Rules for Creating WE. I contributed three chapters to this book. You can purchase it from Amazon.com. Just follow this link:
42 Rules for Creating WE is edited by Judith E. Glaser, a long time colleague and friend – and the author of the bestseller Creating WE. Judith and I have worked together on several projects over the years. 18 of my colleagues from the Creating WE Institute contributed to this book.
42 Rules for Creating WE contains creative, innovative insights and ways to practice WE-centric thinking in your own organization. It provides clear strategies for breathing life into your workplace, for creating opportunity and possibility and for making this world a little less contentious and a little more civil.
My rules are # 2, “There is No Quid Pro Quo in WE”; # 21, “Always Act in a Manner That Honors Yourself and Your Associates”; and # 36, “Big WE, Little Me.”
