I was sitting alone in a café. The café was crowded, with very few seats left empty. A man occupied a seat in front of me. He was near thirty and was formally dressed. I was getting bored sitting alone so I started chatting with him.
I introduced myself. He told me that, he had done his MBA from a reputed B-School and was working with a top bank as Relationship Manager.
Whenever I meet someone experienced person from the industry, I always try to get maximum information.
“Do I need to be a Finance genius to succeed in banking career? “ I asked him curiously.
“No, not at all! The key to any successful career is relationships. Take my example I am a Relationship Manager handling big accounts. I understand what exactly the customer wants. Relationship with customer is the most important factor in success,” He started his speech. Probably after many days he had got a dedicated listener.
He went on and on about his relationship doctrine and its importance to success.
To escape from his relationship monologue I changed the topic I asked him about his family.
He uttered only three words, “I am divorced.”
