Building relationships (Guan Xi)

Humans have a tendency not to represent the truth in their expressions due to personal reasons and because of it, misguided notions will run the risks of a great loss in expectations, especially with decisions on a long term relationship or business partnership. You don’t want to know what I am capable of doing to get to the bottom of things, to make an informed decision. My advice is to be very careful, take one step at a time, do not dive headlong into things which later you have no control of.

To be successful, you mst not only be informed, you must also minimise your risks.

1) To plan properly, you need to build your network.
2) Identify all relationships and build on contacts, taking one step at a time.
3) If someone offers you a dream opportunity, identify the real reason behind it, most of the time, there are real costs involved, and if it is too good to be true, it probably is.
4) Building a good foundation in business relationships and contacts must be taken one step at a time, a level of trust and understanding about your business associates, key objectives can be met, if you have a reliable partner, it is better to plan for long term relationships, than short term profit gains, cause your partner could also be your competitor overnight, if there is no relationship.
5) Most senior management fail to recognise, the planning for long term growth, is better than short term gains, and having reliable business partners, will ensure you have an edge over competition, “no business is done overnight”.
6) The Japanese advocate lifelong employment, but that is almost impossible to bear, whereas the Americans implement cost cutting, when you are no longer productive, out you go. Does age really matters? In today’s economy, it will take you at least a decade long of learning to reach the head of your dept, and another decade of learning to reach senior management, but how long will it take, to reach industry wide knowledge, especially on a global scale? Actually how many have the experience, to reach across all economies? Therefore American fundamentals does not build, a solid rock foundation, in relationship building. The emphasis should be all round lifelong knowledge building, team building, and relationship building, for a global economy.
