By Cindy Dunston Quirk, Great Lakes Bureau Chief

Just in case no one told you this in business school, you can’t do this on your own.

What in the heck am I talking about? Relationships.

In “Young American” by David Bowie, he writes, “You need I; I need you.” So true. Today’s business climate isn’t about kicking networking old school by going to the network meeting of the moment and hand out fifty cards and expect fifty leads in return. That still happens but most of us in attendance flee from these folks.

Relationships make the world go ‘round.

The relationships I am talking about aren’t the old boy network kind. I mean real relationships where you actually care about the person more than the outcome; about the connections you form with your business compadres. It is all about cultivation of those connections and how you can help someone else grow or develop knowing that good will come back to you. Paying it forward.
