2. EQ Tapping in to your customers emotional needs is one of the keys to your future growth and survival.
3. PEOPLE Find the people who are doing what you need and make them part of your team.
4. CUSTOMERS Embed the customer in your entire business ecosystem, not just marketing.
5. PARTICIPATION Co-create products and services that your customers and advocates want to talk about, share and buy.
