No Labels: Building Trust and Finding Common Ground | The Trust Edge

The United States government persistently ends up in a grid lock on very important issues, and certain members of Congress have had enough. A new voice is rising up out of Washington. No Labels is a non-profit working alongside Democrats and Republicans to bring harmony back to the halls of Congress. Eighty-six congressmen and congresswomen have joined together to ask the right questions. They are learning about those across the aisle from them and are finding that they have something in common.  Although they say their one goal is to forge solutions to America’s problems, they are coming to the conclusion that nothing will move forward unless trust is established.

In politics more often than not, politicians don’t get past the surface label of Democrat or Republican. Because of this they miss out on the depth of understanding that could allow them to see opinions, needs and challenges of the American people. No Labels has formed a group that is helping congress discover that opposing parties have more commonalities than they otherwise thought. The status quo is being challenged and parties are becoming aware of the lack of trust within the U.S. government.

The Secret to Achieving Extraordinary Results

Walt Disney once said, “Do what you do so well that they will want to see it again and bring their friends.” When it comes to customer experience and delivering results, people don’t want to buy ordinary. They want to have an amazing experience that they can rave about and share with others. So how can we deliver these results to our customers on a daily basis and move from ordinary to extraordinary?  

My friend Mark Sanborn, who I deeply respect, has just written a book that gives you the tools and strategies necessary to gaining the competitive advantage of extraordinary results—needed more than ever in this highly networked global economy. I am proud and excited to recommend Fred 2.0 by Mark Sanborn.
