More and more, I believe conversation is dramatically underrated.
People are quick to dismiss conversation as meaningless in business while advocating rapid action. Now, I'm all for action - provided it is wise action grounded in real need.
Start thinking of conversation as something you invest in. An investment of time, money, energy, and intellect.
What conversations are you currently investing in? Focus more on the who rather than the why. Amazing things happen when you invest in conversation with the right people. When David Hawkins recently joined Colour it was more a product of wise decision making pertaining to whom we should be in conversation with rather than the why.
