The Great 8 is comprised of people who invest in you and have your best interest at heart. Harwood developed The Greatness Principle after working one-on-one with numerous businesses and learning about what made them successful – having a core group of people around them that they trust and confide in.

You are looking for certain types of individuals for your team. You want a motivator, bystander, catalyst, scholar, anchor, enthusiast, grounder, and sage that fill the mind, body, spiritual, and emotional areas of your life in business.

By having a team, you are not giving up control. Instead, you are allowing them to give you points of view, feedback, and information that you may not see or understand. They give you different perspectives in order for you to make the best choices and decisions.

In this episode of Business Brain Food you will learn:

  • The purpose of the Greatness Principle
  • Eight types of relationships involved with the Greatness Principle
  • The importance of balance in perspectives
  • How to build a Great 8 team
