As the title suggests, the author provides ten "truths" for interacting and developing your relationships with others, and uses quotes and experiences from individuals as diverse as Gandhi and Reverend Wright to illustrate his points.
Initially, I thought this was a repackaging of the concept of the Golden Rule. It is, but it's much more than that. Click is a set of guidelines with helpful metaphors and truisms to help you relate more effectively and completely with others, and to feel good about doing it.
Several areas which made me think more deeply about interpersonal dynamics included:
- A section on pruning relationships that are not positive in an effective and nontoxic manner to focus renewed energy on more mutually beneficial relationships. While (hopefully) rare, these experiences can be unsettling, and the author's perspective was helpful to consider.
- Being open to everything and attached to nothing, which makes it easier to consider, appreciate, and support the contributions of others while strengthening the bonds of effective teams and connections.
- The concept of Trust First -- Distrust Must Be Earned, helps to set aside preconditioned notions to look at each new situation with a fresh and open perspective.
In my business endeavors, I'm building relationships with people who know that I represent a vendor and support its sales and delivery mission.Read more ›
One of the most valuable topics in the book was how to control one's tongue. The adage "Loose lips sink ships!" has never rung more true. People have a tendency to be reckless with their mouths under the guise of "being honest", when in fact it's an excuse to spit venom without accepting responsibility for what they speak. The way Fraser addresses this issue is mandatory reading for anyone involved in leadership and/or negotiation positions.
It's a quick read (200 pages), but a valuable one.
Click gives you directions on how to identify if a relationship is healthy or toxic. Most important, Click deals with the business of reconnecting you with the personal touches that make-up a quality relationship like integrity, loyalty, honesty, respect, honor and unconditional love.
In this techi-world that we live in, we have lost touch with social graces that help us build long lasting, valuable relationships. We are too busy emailing, text messaging,blogging and talking on the cell phone to really connect with people.
George Fraser, via Click, reminds us about the simple things in life that has such a profound impact on our wealth, health, well-being and spirituality- a joke,a smile, words of encouragement and support. These intrinsic values that have become lost, we need to find.
You can achieve so much in business and in life by authentically clicking with folks of like-mind and working together to make this world the best it is destined to be. Buy Click if you want to fall in love with networking and connecting with people.
