Tip 19: You are more Attractive When You Break Bread with a Competitor

Stacey Hall Berrett-Koehler Publishers ePub

We have met the enemy,

                        and it is us.

                Pogo (Walt Kelly)

THE TIP today is a bit outrageous: call one of your competitors and invite him or her to lunch with the goal of transforming this competitor into a collaborator.

As a Synchronicity Strategist, you should always be prepared to refer less-than-perfect clients to someone else in your industry for whom they are more perfect. The only way to truly know your competitors is to build relationships with them.

We have worked with many clients who, at first, balked at this tip. They believed that the owners of the other businesses in their industry would not want to share any information with a so-called competitor. Our advice to them and to you is to begin developing relationships with businesspeople who belong to your industry’s trade association. These are the people who understand the importance of sharing knowledge, information, and even customers for the betterment of all concerned. Most of the local chapters of these associations have monthly breakfast or lunch meetings specifically for the purpose of introducing representatives of competitive businesses to each other.

XXIV Comfort in Humility

Donna Giaimo Fsp Pauline Books and Media ePub

Retreating into myself and reflecting on the various events in my humble life, I recognize that the Lord exempted me from the tribulations that make service to truth, justice, and charity so difficult and demanding for many people. I lived through my infancy and youth without noticing the poverty, without worrying about family, studies, or dangerous circumstances such as those I faced, for example, during my military service at the age of twenty, and during the Great War. . . .

Little and humble as I acknowledge myself to be, I was always warmly welcomed wherever I went, from the seminary in Bergamo and later in Rome, through the ten years of my priestly life near my bishop in my native city; from 1921 until now, 1961, that is from Rome and back to Rome, as far as the Vatican. O good God, how do I thank you for the gracious manner in which I was received wherever I went in your name, always in pure obedience, not to do my own but your will? “What shall I return to the LORD for all his bounty to me?” I know well that my answer, to myself and to the Lord, is always: “I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD” [see Ps 116:12 and 13].

PART II: Descriptions of the Best-Paying Jobs

Michael Farr JIST Publishing ePub

This part provides descriptions for all the jobs included in one or more of the lists in Part I. The Introduction gives more details on how to use and interpret the job descriptions, but here is some additional information:

Job descriptions are arranged in alphabetical order by job title. This approach allows you to find a description quickly if you know its correct title from one of the lists in Part I.

If you are using this section to browse for interesting options, we suggest you begin with the Table of Contents. Part I features many interesting lists that will help you identify job titles to explore in more detail. If you have not browsed the lists in Part I, consider spending some time there. The lists are interesting and will help you identify job titles you can find described in the material that follows. The job titles in Part II are also listed in the Table of Contents.

Each description lists the most important skills and knowledge/courses required by the job. If the name of any skill or knowledge/course is not meaningful to you, turn to Appendix A for a complete definition. Appendix B discusses which skills are most closely associated with high-paying jobs.
