Kim Peterson Stone, CEO CommonSenseHealth.org
Who you hang out with and bounce ideas off of really, really matters.
Recently I’ve had conversations with peers with regard to ethics, character, and forward motion concerning business ventures, alliances, partnerships, and clients, who to hire, who to fire and industry trends.
Having that group of peers who are positive, focused and give you honest and unbiased feedback is critical in my humble opinion.
Making the decision to fire a client, make a pivot with your business or career or move into uncharted territory can be terrifying!
The value of bouncing ideas and concepts off of a trusted group of peers can save you time, effort, energy, money, heartache and time.
As Michael Hyatt so eloquently puts it …
Relationship-based learning communities can be invaluable in the areas of
“1. Learning. Getting connected with a good group can accelerate your learning, provide key insights, help you find important resources, and teach you best practices.
2. Encouragement. Whether it’s business, family life, or our faith journey, life can be tough. A good peer group can give you the validation and support you need to keep going and rise above the tempests.
3. Accountability. We need people who can speak into our lives and help us when we’re veering off track. The right peers are essential for this.
And of course, it’s not just about what you get. You can offer the same learning, encouragement, and accountability to others in the group.”
After running Masterminds, sitting on boards and benefiting immensely from my peer group, I can say from personal experience that I agree wholeheartedly with Ken Blanchard when he said: “None of us is as smart as all of us.”
