Incorporating "9 Partnership Principles" into Your Daily Life #4 OPEN COMMUNICATIONS WITH NO FEAR OF FEEDBACK

Partnership Principle #4 – Open Communications with no Fear of Feedback

  • It’s done respectfully, timely and lead with your heart.
  • Without feedback we don’t even know if the other party is listening.
  • Quality communication takes thoughtful effort to make it count.
  • Having an open communication environment isn’t easy.  An open door lets everything through – not just what you want to hear.
  • When it comes to communication, it’s not always what the other person is actually saying, it’s what you are hearing and to have good ears on must understand the intentions with which things are being shared.

  • The best agenda is honestly seeking what is good for others.
  • The best partnerships happen when you and someone who has strengths that compliment yours join forces on a single goal.

9 Partnership Principles: A Story of Life Lessons and Working Together

 

 

CLICK HERE FOR A VIDEO LOOK INSIDE "9 PARTNERSHIP PRINCIPLES" 

When most people create business partnerships, they focus on potential opportunities, their office, titles, mission statements, stationary, logos, social media platforms, and more. But entrepreneurs Bryan O'Rourke and Robert J. Dyer know there is much more to establishing a successful partnership. The founders of Fitmarc, which is a strategic partner with a variety of leading global fitness and wellness players, share nine principles to success in this guide to improving life at work and at home. Whoever you're considering as a partner, values and character should be at the top of the list. You must openly discuss your views without fear of reprisal-and if you can't-you need to ask yourself why. It's also important to realize that no one has the right answers. But you do need to ask the right questions if you want to succeed.

Fitmarc - The Story Of Our Company

2006 we started the South Central agency for Les Mills International, back then it was exciting
as a team and it took a great deal of work to get us to serving around 7,000 instructors and
800 fitness facilities.

We couldn't have done it without the help of our great team.
We created the video above to give a sense of our beliefs and hopefully you'll see that what
we believe in is people. We helped people who are were customers and partners. Ultimately
being successful is all about the humanization of business.

Our Principals

To achieve our goals by aligning with people who share our core values of integrity, hard work,
diversity, compassion and forward looking strategic, organizational and industry vision.

Our Vision

Make major transformative contributions to the fitness and wellness industries that help people achieve wellness preventively while helping providers and players in the space to be more successful in light of a rapidly changing environment.

Social Media And Digital Marketing - Its Not What You Might Think

I just love Gary Vaynerchuk. His books the Thank You Economy and Jab Jab Jab Right Hook are wonderful commentaries on how marketing has changed. You see, it used to be businesses could sort of not tell the whole truth. Some promoted and shared the good news, avoiding the bad and hoping you might not notice. In today's world, with 70% of the US having smart phones and large percentages of consumers participating in social networks, there is no hiding anymore. This is where the humanization of business is becoming so important to organizational success.

I've shared my friend and partner Bryan O'Rourke's recent IHRSA Institute presentation above on Social Media and Digital Marketing. Take a look and you'll see the future is not so much about technology, its about people and how technology can be a tool to be more caring of the people your organization should care about.

What do YOU think ? I'd love to know.

ACE Podcast - 15 Minutes To Wellness With Michael Mantell - Lessons In Leadership

In my view success in business has to do with working with people. Relating to them, supporting them and being authentic is both the most essential foundation to creating great organizations and the most human way to be. Having communicated and followed Michael Mantell for years in his roles at both the American Council on Exercise and as a consultant for a number of well known fitness brands, I was honored to receive his invitation to talk about not only our businesses Fitmarc and Integerus, but also about the human elements of leadership. He titled it Lessons in Leadership and I really enjoyed spending time with Michael reflecting on the topic.

Please check out the interviews and let me know what you think. Its a two part interview that you can listen to here and here.

Thanks to ACE and Dr. Mantell for the chance to contribute and thanks to you for visiting my web site.

Pavigym 50th Anniversary Celebration

I had the opportunity to experience the Pavigym Temple at the 50th Anniversary Celebration. Check out this video on their 3.0 flooring. This new technology is something to think about. Can you say "innovation"? Imagine the creativity you could bring to your members and team!

So You Think You Are a CEO?

If you aren’t a customer of your own business, you are fooling yourself if you think you fully understand your customers' needs. CEOs have to make sure that their customers know they are fully responsible for the customer experience. I always want our customers to know that they can come straight to me and I will take personal responsibility for our products or services, and also for the customer experience.

It’s never [simply] about listening to your customers. It’s always about figuring out what they will need but don’t realize yet.
