Answer me these five questions if you please…
- Are you on a team? (it does not have to be a CTP Team by the way)
- Does the team you are on make you feel part of a community?
- Is your relationship with your team members important to you?
- Do you feel loyal to your team?
- You expect loyalty from your team members?
You don’t have to write your answers down or leave them as a comment to this post – although you are very welcome to do so if you so desire. The idea is just to get you to think about the issues.
Now let’s look at CTP Teams…I think it is clear that CTP is very much a community and a community of people who, to one extent or other, share the same goals and passions.
I regularly hear people say how they feel loyal to their teams and how they want to work hard to do the best for their teams.
These are all skills we need in our online business because it is so much better, so much more fun and so much easier to work alongside others rather than trying to do everything by yourself.
Recently on the Lucky 13 blog, John Brewer asked Is Branding The New Currency? and it is a good question.
He referred to a recent CNN report where an advertising expert was talking about the importance of being trustworthy and of building and protecting your reputation. He compared one’s reputation to a currency and went on to say that loyalty is now
Does any of that sound familiar? It should. I think this has been a recurring theme on TELive for just about as long as TELive has been in existence.
In more recent times we have developed a community within a community, that of CTP Teams. Yes it is fun and interesting and we get to hang out with some really cool people but it is also about making contacts, building reputations and gaining loyalty.
Not a bad thing to ponder as we start a new week. Not a bad thing to ponder at all.
Have a great week everybody.
