Five Reasons Why You Should Embrace Your Competition, with Marsha Lindquist, CP APMP, NCMA Fellow. 


Business leaders are often trained never to trust their competition. They see business as a win-lose game, where if they associate with their competitors they’ll get beat. But this isn’t always the best approach to dealing with the other team. No two companies are created exactly the same, even if they are perceived as competitors. While any two competitors may share some similarities, the majority of their functions are completely different. And even if you do all the exact same things as another company, you have different people and systems in your organization that make you unique. This concept is important to realize because once you get past the fear of your competition, you can actually build mutually beneficial relationships and grow your business. Forging relationships with companies within your industry can allow you both to achieve greater levels of success.
