I had the pleasure of interviewing **Dorrie Clark, author of The Long Game, as well as names as one of the Top 50 Business Thinkers in the World.

The more successful we become as professionals the more in demand we are, and the people who want to spend time with us may not be the people that we should be spending time with.

Mo asked Dorie:

“With the concepts in her book The Long Game, how can we use those concepts to establish and build the relationship advantage?”

Dorie responded:

"Building strong relationships is something that is really important to me in terms of the work that I do working with clients and a consulting and executive coach as well. So, I’m definitely on the same page as your listeners.”

“One of the strategies that we talk in The Long Game is actually thinking through turning down offers, and making sure that you are clearing your plate so that you havethe time and space to connect with the right people. As we get more successful as professionals, we are more in demand, and it almost seems inevitable, that a large percentage of the people that want to spend time with us, are maybe actually not the people we should be spending time with.”
