SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION
Six degrees of separation is the idea that all living things and everything else in the world are six or fewer steps away from each other so that a chain of “ a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps.
In the “ Business “ world the prevailing attitude says that the harnessing the power and speed of technology will allow any ‘ Good ‘ product or service to prevail and potentially dominate the market it serves. Faster is Better. Technology reigns supreme. But what of the most important element? People.
I believe that when we look beyond what our ultimate goal is, serving people, then we risk the opportunity to build relationships. Really, business IS about people. How can I best serve. This what I have to offer. Will this help you solve a problem?
