Relationship Roundup

This week in the roundup, tips for advice that isn’t useful, extreme intimacy in the workplace, the power of LinkedIn for job seekers, more on relationship marketing, and expert insight for doing business in the social era.

Tips for handling off target advice – We often get questions in the myGreenlight community about how to handle the feedback and advice we seek from others, especially when it’s off track. HBR blogger and managing partner of Schaffer Consulting Ron Ashkenas and Schaffer Consultant Holly Newman’s article offers great tips managing these scenarios. Read it here

New levels of intimacy – This isn’t quite what we have in mind when we encourage people to foster intimacy in their working relationships, but you never can tell what may happen when you open the door of intimacy. As long it as also facilitates business goals I’m all for it. Read the study here

More from Mari – Last week we recommended Mari Smith’s book on relationship marketing. This week we’re recommending you view her interview on Mashable. Enjoy.

Rules for business in the social era – I highly recommend tuning into Nilofer Merchant’s series of HBR blogs and/or her new book The New How to learn how the social era can change the way you look up and down your organization’s hierarchy.

  1. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your blog. You have some really great articles and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please send me an email if interested. Thank you!

  2. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on
    everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Thanks!

  3. I am no longer positive the place you are getting your info,
    but good topic. I needs to spend some time studying more or understanding more.
    Thank you for great info I used to be on the lookout for this information for my mission.

  4. I find it a touchy area when you receive feedback from a peer which you feel is totally off base. I, personally, don’t want to give the impression I don’t respect their opinion but, occasionally a review may just be off base.
    Thanks for the link for some tips in this area.
