Embracing key values of relationships, Matt encourages us to love ourselves, those around us and the world we live in - discovering fun and friendship as we journey.
It's certainly a book to keep to hand and encourage us to incorporate a new secret everyday... just watch for the results!
I've been enjoying Matt Bird's inspired weekly "Relationology " tips for about a year now, so it's great to have a book of these bite-sized insights.
We can get so focused on "process", "resources" and "the bottom line" that it's easy to miss wonderful opportunities through relationships we may already have.
Ideal for dipping into - on the train - lunch breaks etc.
I've ordered a few more copies to pass on to some of our unemployed clients who need to build the confidence that these simple, anecdotal ideas will give them.
And if (like me) you've been in business for years, then you'll find new angles and fresh approaches.
This means that Matt engages directly with some quite profound observations about authenticity and sincerity in relationships, and Christian readers will be able to trace this back to Matt’s own Christian faith. But the ideas are presented in such a way as to be well integrated into the whole text, so would not grate for the average non-Christian reader. Some of the striking observations include:
Compliment people: in general, people do not think of themselves as highly as they should (p 32).
Authentic listening is actually a gift rather than a learnt technique (p 40).
Being vulnerable and putting yourself at risk says to the other person that you trust them and that you want to know them at a deeper, more meaningful level (p 46).
Being your own unedited self won’t only change the way that people respond to you, it will change the way that you respond to them (p 95).
Integrity is what we do when no one is looking (p 121).Read more ›
Relationology tackles an area which I don't think many other business books (or even sales/marketing experts, business events) cover so deeply. If you own a business this book is a must. If you run a company (like myself) that deals with business to business plus rely on repeat business, creating relationships and maintaining relationships are the key to growth and survival. I tend to put "sales and marketing" activities to the bottom of my to do list as it is not natural to me. This book will help you look at "sales and marketing" in a new way.
Very easy to read, split into short chapters. Ideal as you can quickly find what you want and give you confidence before you have to make that difficult phone call or try and make an appointment with that old client you have been wanting to catch up with.
