Networking In An Effective Way
Networking In An Effective Way
networking in an effective way is smartIt has been said that networking with strangers can be seen as wasting your time. Effective networking is all about building relationships so start slowly and work up. Why? A friend of mine was complaining, “I’m doing 2-3 networking events a week – and I’m worn out.” I then asked why they felt doing so much networking was important and they replied, “One of my marketing goals is to do at least 1 networking event a week.” I then told them that their goal was just 1 each week, so why do more than that? The point is to build business relationships and gain trust. This means less is better, rather than

The Power Of Listening And Building Rapport
The Power Of Listening And Building Rapport
build rapport with the power of listeningOne of the most vital skills for any effective communicator is the have the power of listening. The skill of listening isn’t taught in school, and it’s something that should be developed more. Listening is a powerful skill that can be learned effectively and practiced. It’s amazing how much more respect and esteem you will get by listening rather than talking constantly. Isn’t it funny how sometimes you can link a specific phrase to someone? I once knew a guy called Ray kept saying “I hear you” when he was listening to me talking. Even though I liked this characteristic, I often wondered whether he was saying that because he actually heard, or that he maybe disagreed with what

What To Do When You Lose Your Focus.
What To Do When You Lose Your Focus.
It's easy to lose focusWith all the distractions around these days, it’s too easy to lose focus on what you have to do or complete your tasks on time. There are times when life seems to “get in the way”. Then the negative factors kick in. There’s not enough time. I am working too hard with no end in sight. I Can’t DO IT!!! I can relate to this a lot recently. I do quite a lot of things anyway, but recently there have been weddings for 2 of my sons, my mother fell and broke her hip. This led to me going to the hospital nearly every day as well as helping to care for my elderly father. Don’t get me wrong, these things I NEED to do, but when you’re focused on getting business stuff done, these distractions are a real

Developing Alliances And Value With Cooperation In Business
Developing Alliances And Value With Cooperation In Business
forming alliances and business cooperationHaving worked in the construction industry in the past, I understand the value of alliances and business cooperation. Even though I worked as a sub-contractor to the main developing contractor as an electrician, it’s vital to coordinate and program the work together as a team. Of course, the main contractor sets out the schedule, but communication is paramount to keep everything running smoothly with a successful outcome. If one thing goes “out of kilter” it can create real problems for the project and is generally unnecessary in my experience. It may be a crazy as one “ego” against another, which is against all the principles which I was encouraged to work in. Business cooperation and building alliances between trade company representatives who work on any project, from the smallest to the largest, is key. “Getting on” with your work mates, no matter what trade they are in, is the obvious way forward for anyone. The value to the customer also improves because of the way the job has come together and completed efficiently. This proves

Why Your Life Journey Matters.
Why Your Life Journey Matters.
building your journey through life and following the pathEvery one of us has our own life journey. It’s a personal thing that often has too many people trying to influence. The outside influence is all around us. Why is it that all we hear about is bad news? Bad news accounts for a miniscule part of the news as a whole, but all we seem to hear about is murder, bombings, terrorism and the like. Why is that? I think it’s to drive fear into all of us so we comply with the control that is “invisible” all around us. We never really know the power of what we can achieve until we let go of this and set out our own life path. The control can be as simple as people setting limits on us. Education systems in the past (and maybe even now in some circumstances) limited the expectations of certain pupils. What kind of message does that send out? It promotes
