3 Critical Elements for Successful Business Relationships

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

2. Trust

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

3. Credibility

Successful business Relationships are built on your own credibility. Constantly striving to add value to those you meet, to listen to their needs, and to meet those needs quickly and with integrity is building a credible and successful company.

—Leanne Lopez Mosley, founder and CEO of GROW Coaching Solutions
