"In my work I teach that people are only about six inches away from success -- the space between their ears.  Your attitude is the key, and how you treat others in your quest for success is equally important.  Corinne Gregory has managed to capture the essene of how others need to be treated by you if you wish for them to be part of your (and their) success.  It's a small book, but packs a powerful and necessary message: "It's Not Who You Know, It's How You Treat Them." That is a great attitude to live by.

“We learn early in life that relationships are the key to getting what we want. Unfortunately, we often forget this principle once we become adults. Corinne Gregory’s ‘It’s Not Who you Know…’ approach reminds us that we get what we give, and will get more when we give more. It is the win/win defined, but she uniquely explains how it is really a ‘win/win/win’ as the sum of a great relationship goes well beyond the individual value to each participant.”

- "Craig Duswalt, Speaker, author and Creator of the RockStar System for Success

"I have had the privilege of representing my company in many deal negotiations with suppliers, customers, and employees here at home and in Europe and Asia. Without question, the very best business deals are those where we would be just as happy to exchange places with the party across the table. “It’s Not Who You Know, It’s How You Treat Them” details how to realize the most productive dealings with everyone our from closest colleagues to first-time encounters with new business prospects. Practical experience proves that consistently applying the principles and practices described are at the root of all successful organizations. Whether you have instinctively subscribed to them, or are looking to advance your management skills “It’s Not Who You Know, It’s How You Treat Them” is well worth reading."
