  • Why Rapport is an essential aspect for your business
  • How to establish good rapport among employees
  • How to build real and genuine relationships



“I think rapport also has to come in a natural, humble way, it can’t be self-serving or arrogant or for other purposes and so that’s what makes it kind of genuine and without that genuine humility, it doesn’t work.”

“When it [rapport with employees] comes out in a genuine manner, it gives you an additional level of care and empathy and interest in the life of your employees and that can really drive culture.”

“Do take care of your vendors, your vendors are your partners, they’re part of your team and when you ask them, you know, how can I be a better customer of yours, that’s gonna blow them away.”

“Vendor service trumps $2-$5 per gallon, all day.”

“It’s a transactional business, but ultimately it’s all about relationships.”
