Reciprocal

From Tom Asacker writing at A Clear Eye

Knowledge is one sided. Wisdom works reciprocally. Knowledge is about getting the deal done. Wisdom understands that the purpose of each interaction is to grow the strength of the relationship. I meet a lot of very knowledgeable people in my business travels, but very few wise ones. Most people feel that they have to do all of the talking to prove their value, and to show how smart and dynamic they are. In fact, the key to building enduring relationships is to forget about you, be attentively silent and help the other person feel appreciated and valued.

I will be quiet and wait for you to finish.

    That is a fabulous pointer Steve, thank you for sharing it. Once again we see what insightful writing can be found in a blogger's generosity.

    I do subscribe to Tom's blog, but you know how one can get behind when the RSS alerts lights up like a Christmas tree...

    mahalo nui,
    Rosa

    Thanks Rosa. I have been behind as well. I have been re-organizing my bloglines feeds and being more disciplined to read the "must reads" and skip some of the other categories.

    Tom does write well. In fact, I am over due in completing the review on his book. Of course, there are some other books I am behind on reviews with so I do need to get in order there. Probably will need to spend less time in Bloglines in order to catch up.
