With my recent posts focusing on LinkedIn Endorsements and Recommendations, it seems like a good time to share one of my favorite quotes from Chris Brogan, CEO & President of Human Business Works:
Brogan wasn’t talking about LinkedIn specifically, but he may as well have been. While most people focus on how they get more Endorsements and Recommendations, it’s worth remembering that giving them has a lot of value, too. Why? Well, most of us want to work with people who appreciate and acknowledge good work, and being generous with Endorsements and Recommendations is an easy way to demonstrate that you’re one of those people.
As the old saying goes, “it’s better to give than to receive”–even on LinkedIn.
