Intimacy in Business?

When you hear the word “intimacy,” your business is probably the last thing that comes to mind. Intimacy conjures up images of candlelight dinners, a glass of wine with your loved one as you snuggle by the fire, or a romantic walk on a moonlit beach. Let’s suspend those thoughts for a moment and think about the ways intimacy works in your business with your co-workers and with your customers in an appropriate business fashion.

My good friend Patty Marmann is an RN and an “Intimacy Expert.”  (Yes, it is exactly what it sounds like and you can check her out on Facebook) 

Patty reminds us that, “First and foremost, intimacy is not always about sex. We have intimate conversations with our partners, our children, our friends, and our customers. Intimacy in business and personal life allows for a deeper, stronger connection and understanding.”

What would it mean for you to develop an intimate relationship with your clients?  How would it help your business?

    Absolutely love this concept and I also think that the intimacy with clients starts with intimacy with the staff, management, and the big why the business is doing what it does. This is great work!
