Just a reminder that the new intro to the podcast was produced by Tony Wolfe.
Stewart Emery shared a story with Dr. Misner recently about a billionaire CEO who used the same company cafeteria as the rest of the employees. Prospective buyers of the company wanted that to change if they bought the company. The CEO halted the negotiations that day.
Chapters have a choice about whether to be inclusive or exclusive. The more successful you are, the easier it is to be standoffish. A good power team might be tempted to be exclusive, but a GREAT power team will be inclusive and share its success.
Leaders within BNI should be approachable. When the members understand that the people on the leadership team care about their success, it creates a healthy culture. Leading from among makes us better leaders in our own businesses as well as in our chapters.
