Secrets to Successful Networking

Dr Jim Taggart - Tuesday, September 13, 2016


When I receive a business card from someone I quickly try to find out about them by looking at the qualifications, their address or any other unique signal or sign that tells me about them. Do they have a catch phrase after the company name? Are they are trusted a partnership and so on. By looking at the qualifications you may have gone to the same university or college, you therefore have some instant connection to further deepen your conversation and relationship. Equally when you know of their address you may know of other people who are centered in or around their location, again this helps further developing a relationship about people.

Quite often because of our prejudices and limited understanding we pigeonhole people. When we find out what type of job they do we make assumptions, this can quite often destroy the relationship you're trying to build and stop it from developing. Whenever talking to people always have an open mind and be aware of your own prejudices.

Some relationships develop quickly while others take a lot more time.

It is only through genuine and authentic verbal and non-verbal cues that you're able to build that very important concept called relationships. Just think about what you're doing when you are engaging people. Sharing your world all at the same time trying to understand theirs. Good Luck
