Building Global Connections
Tom Friedman’s article “Swedish Spoken Here” reminds us that we are now more than ever connected to other people, places, countries, institutions around the globe. (http://www.nytimes.com)
US financial institutions, companies large and small are partners, suppliers,
customers, borrowers and employees tied to foreign investors.
It’s a moment to consider that our American focus on our schedules, deadlines and projects aren’t always seen as the most effective way to do business. More likely the foundation for successful business is considered to be the relationships developed between individuals. Build connections, develop mutual trust and increase the opportunities to flourish wherever business takes you.
