Give and It Shall Be Given Unto You

There was a great post by Adam Steen over at the IowaBiz.com, in which he addresses the idea of giving of your knowledge and expertise – having faith that it will return. For those who know the concept, it’s like tithing your heart, brain and time. I’ve been on the receiving end of Adam’s "tithe" and it has helped me make profitable connections. It’s also inspired me to "pay it forward."

Blogs are a good example of Adam’s principle. Provide people with quality content that helps them in their business. Most people appreciate what you give them, and when they need more of what you provide – they will remember. Give, and it comes back to you in a myriad of ways.

Another great example of a blog providing great content for Call Centers is Connie Smith over at Envision blog. Connie pulls in ideas and thoughts of others and spreads it out so that we all profit from it.

Are you hoarding your heart and brain? Do you have faith to tithe a portion of what you know to the benefit of all?

    Thanks Tom! One of the great things about Envision is the culture that encourages intimate knowledge of our customers, as well as the call center community. We work to cultivate partnerships with our customers, prospects and the broader call center community, and I’m happy to help carry that torch. Ultimately, I think that helping to educate others benefits us all.
