When you surround yourself with good people, both from a supervisor, employee, business partner, client, vendor and any other professional relationship standpoint, you’re able to get more done, be more productive and solve problems easily that otherwise would be super difficult and full of friction.
This is why, in about 85% of the emails I write and 100% of the invoices I sent out, I include “Thank you for your partnership and teamwork.”
It’s not a throwaway phrase like “sincerely,” “best,” or “thanks,” … It is NOT part of my email signature, nor any templated communications. There is true meaning behind it. Because without true partnership and teamwork, with great people, possibilities are drastically limited.
Here’s a recent real life example.
I just sent out an email stating that I’d be presenting at a Nashville Technology Council Tech Talk on January 16, 2020, called Voice Apps For Business. It’s so fresh off the presses that at the time I’m writing this, it’s still actually on our website. I have to change it right after I publish this.
The reality is, I’ll be at Project Voice, the number 1 event for Voice Tech and AI at the exact same time as this NTC Tech Talk.
Those of you who know me well enough may understand my high level of confidence in being able to pull this off, but the reality is, I can’t clone myself and be in two places at once, and even if I could, it wouldn’t really be the right thing to do.
Thankfully, I’ve been able to team and partner with amazing people in all aspects. In this example…
- on the Project Voice planning side
- on the NTC planning side
- on the Data Driven Design side
What could have been a huge issue is now solved, thanks to everyone’s partnership and teamwork.
- I’ll be at Project Voice in Chattanooga all week, from January 13-17 – Not presenting at the Nashville Technology Council on January 16.
- Allen Willis, our amazing VP of Digital Strategy and Web Design will be presenting on January 16 in my place, on a revised subject matter topic (Data Driven Digital Strategy Workshop). More information on that is here.
- I’ll be presenting my originally planned Voice Apps for Business at the Nashville Technology Council on August 20.
More information on all events below. There are specific people I’d like to thank, but I think you know who you are. Thanks again for your partnership and teamwork.
