Return on Relationship (ROR) Training

Results in every organization are driven by people. Understanding how to deepen your relationships with your team, your boss, your customers and your community is essential for delivering exponentially better results.

It’s impossible to build a successful client base in a silo. In other words, relationships are not optional. Though economists talk only of Return on Investment or ROI, Spaulding argues that profit and relationships are interdependent. Our focus should be on Return on Relationships or “ROR.” When we are truly focusing on relationships, the bottom line goals come more easily. The success of any organization is grounded in the formation of sustainable connections. Learn how “relationship capital” throughout your organization can maximize your employees’ potential and truly impact your bottom line.

Participants Learn

Why R.O.R (Return on Relationships) is the new currency driving R.O.I The Five Floors of relationships and how to use them with your team and clients How to build relationship capital with co-workers and clients Understanding the Fifth Floor leaders mindset of netgiving versus networking

A game plan for building relationships that are genuine and authentic with lifelong sustainability
