This week’s focus point: When people approach you with suggestions to “collaborate,” use the famous line from the movie Jerry McGuire: :”Show me the money.” Collaborations make sense with a client in mind and money on the table. They are a waste of time when purely conceptual and organized around what “may” transpire. Most conceptual collaborations mean that someone else wants something that you already have.
Monday Morning Perspective: When a top executive is selecting key associates, there are only two qualities for which almost any price is worthwhile: taste and judgment. Almost anything else can be bought by the yard. — John Gardner, writing about leadership.
