When Others Around You Win

Posted on by Brian Hertzog

When others around you win, you win. When you're on the same team, personal goals are important, but so are the goals of people around you. There's a classic saying, "a rising tide raises all ships." If you find yourself in a fog unsure of your next move, sales call, partnership, etc. look no further than the people sitting near your desk. Maybe you can make an introduction, recommendation, open a door. Your goal shouldn't be to be the only one standing at the finish line, but share your victorious among friends.

The funny thing about helping other people around you win, is they will also be happy to reciprocate your generosity. When others around you win, you win.
