By Andrew Sobel and Jerold Panas
There are powerful laws that determine the success or failure of your relationships both at work and at home. Just as an airplane must respect the laws of physics in order to fly, your behaviors must align with the Relationship Laws if you want to build the connections you need for success.
These Laws are unseen but ever-present. When you follow them, the results are dramatic. Your network will grow rapidly. You’ll be seen by customers and colleagues as a trusted partner. And you’ll find the people around you eager to help you succeed.
When you ignore the Laws, however, it’s like going against the grain. Relationship building will seem like very hard work—even fruitless.
Power Relationships gives readers a unique, entertaining guide to relationship success. Each of the 26 laws is illustrated and explained using a compelling, real-life story that shows how to implement it. The second section of the book presents 16 common relationship challenges with specific solutions.
In Power Relationships you’ll meet famous entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, phil- anthropists, and an array of everyday people. Each of them teaches us something extraordinary about how to build the enduring, fulfilling relationships that help us succeed. Power Relationships is a unique, road-tested guide to relationship success.
