“Two is the new Three” (English BlogPost 9)
Tribal Tip – Two is the New Three
The most valuable relationships are not made of two people, they’re made of three. A third person will always stabilize and grow the relationship between the other two. It’s called a triad, and the more you create, the stronger your network.
So next time you go to Starbucks, take two professional contacts and introduce them (or deepen their relationship with each other), on the basis of what motivates them, a mutual interest, or a shared project. Listen for the values underneath it all when your companions speak. Discover mutuality. Then say what connects the two people at a deep level. You will instantly create a triad – the building block of a Stage Four culture and the basis of great Tribes.
To see a quantum leap in your relationships, set up three triads this week (even if only by email). You will quickly see a shift in your network or your office.
