To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”  — Ralph Waldo Emerson

As we continue to live in a relationship economy, it is critical that we challenge the fear that somehow being authentic is a bad thing.  It may be uncomfortable and create some opposition in the short term from individuals not used to it.  However, practicing candor, transparency, engaging in honest and open dialogue, and always placing our principles and ethics before advancing our career will bring us greater success in every aspect of our lives.  

Some of the key elements of this program are specific to Paying it Forward, Earning Trust, Listening, Being Candid, and having Insatiable Curiosity.  Join your peers as Randy takes us on a journey and shares the secrets to Authentic Business Relationships.

In this session you will learn the eight essential components of Authentic Business Relationships.
