Let’s work together on something

StevenCarrieReach out to someone outside of your industry or profession and collaborate on something. Get your brain out of the same old pathways, shake things up a bit. Deloitte recently had me come to Nashville and talk to their call center managers. The subject? How successful call centers are no different than successful radio stations. One manager emailed, “It is always very enlightening to get a perspective of what we do from someone on the outside.” Watch two unlikely collaborators rock the roof off of an awards show: Carrie Underwood and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler. How have we not seen this? Oh my, this rocks!

Have a nice weekend – off to Austin. You there?


*And, congrats to one of my favorite people to collaborate with РPeter Shankman. His new book, Zombie Loyalists: Using Great Service to Create Rabid Fans came out this week to rave reviews. This book is the next best thing to collaborating with Peter!
