What is the most important element for successful business relationships?
1. Be open
Open communication and transparency. Without doubt. Don’t promise too much and deliver too little. Be realistic and honest with expectations. If these are always followed, people have little reason to get upset about you or, worse, not to trust you.
– Lisa Gilmore, lead designer at Lisa Gilmore Design
Trust. It forms the basis for relationships with customers, employees and suppliers. Trust empowers people to make the right decisions and take the best actions.
– Rick Salas, President and Co-Founder of Inspire Diagnostics
