It’s so important to form
win-win relationships, especially when you are networking for your
career. This week, Kare Anderson, Emmy-winning former NBC
and Wall Street
author, and now connective behavior and quotability speaker, joins
us to discuss why mutuality is so beneficial, and what benefits we
get when we are in a win-win environment. Kare’s TED talk on The
Web of Humanity has over 2.2 million views, and she is the author
of several books including Mutuality Matters and Moving From Me to We. She and I also discuss how to focus on
commonalities instead of differences, where to start in developing
a win-win relationship, and the difference between mutuality and
quid pro quo.
