This month’s focus for Suite Success is all about being open to cultivating new insights, skills, and relationships. In other words, keeping an open mind. An open mind allows you to grow your company and take it to new places.

Here are three things you can do to cultivate new insights and develop relationships:

Create an Advisory Council. Some decisions are harder than others and knowing who to go to for advice can help. You will want someone with some expertise and who is willing to share information. Where do you find these people? Inc. recently provide nine tips on where to go to for real time business help. Read the article here.

Collaborate. Do you view everyone in your industry as competition? If so, you could be missing out on a tremendous amount of opportunity. Every business and professional comes with a different set of skills, experience, and set of goals. Collaborating is a great way to learn new things and resource so that you can focus on the highest and best of use of skills and time. The local Chamber is a great place to meet new people. The Crown Center Executive Suites Client Appreciation events are also a great place to meet collaborators in a fun and casual setting.

Create success habits. It is said that you will model the behavior of people that you surround yourself with. You might as well surround yourself with success. We have been expanding our reach to the most successful people by reading Success Magazine every month. You can find them online and on social media but when you subscribe to the magazine, you will also receive a CD with top takeaways. We recommend it.

Learn new skills. The only way to grow is to learn. There are many business principles that remain constant and others that evolve. Stay up to date by committing to a class periodically. Crown Center Executive Suites hosts business education events on a regular basis. Stay tuned by signing up for our newsletter and following us on Facebook and Twitter.
