Starting to network can be a bit intimidating.ดูหนังผี You may feel as though you are committing yourself to meeting and engaging with people that speak a different language than yours. In particular, it would feel utterly wrong to go to a networking event and pick up the phone only to call a complete stranger throughout the event. That’s why you need to work with a buddy, a practice known as ‘buddy-philing’.
Buddy-philing is a communication skill in which a friendteachesan acquaintancea new skill or a skill they’ve somehow acquired themselves. The strength in this exercise is that a friend is acting as a sounding board, so that the friend can give an opinion or advice in a way that only the other friend might be able to (if they’ve the time and the effort to).
Like a good buddy phoning forward
The key to enacted buddy-philing is to act like a friend, not like a business associate. You need to value your conversation partner and treat them like a real person. Recognising your friend’s skills, talents and experiences will make your own guest feel special.
Making a new connection, or making a referral, does not have to feel as daunting as it does an actual face-to-face meeting. The fact is, you are both at the event with the benefit of speaking directly with a mutually-examined stranger. You do not have to worry about introducing yourself, and that your guest is actively looking for ways to help you.
A friend phoning forward
When you do meet someone new at the event, it is critical that you educate them on your line of business by bringing them a co-worker.ดูหนัง netflix Sometimes, I get asked how I know someone that’s well-experienced in this particular field. I just smile and say something about my first formal introduction. Then I follow up with this fresh acquaintance with my business card and mention that I’d like to quote him on a reputational piece. He’s excited because he is professionally doing a great job and is hearing about his new sound bite. They’ll also agree to share a few details about their present and previous position with the company. Now that the conversation has taken a new turn, they are really excited about the opportunity to be at this dynamic meeting.
Result: A new business contact.
The tight week at work can make you start to feel isolated. After all, at least you are out and you have a face to face interaction, but the reality is that you are only ever going to be with others if you are in jobs. Some things that are important to keep in mind when you get to people you’ve never even met include:
Listening to your gutA lot of the time you need to listen to your gut. It sounds weird, but it really is there. You need to pay attention to your thoughts, what really seems to be happening and what a little voice is trying to tell.
No, do not stop breathing when someone starts speaking. This is not teaching!
Once a person reveals something they like about themselves and what they do you can then highlight the benefits of working with you.คลิปหลุด For example I brought up that they are a team player because they include me in their weekly employee meetings. I also mention how I’d like to have a friendly debate when we find we are both on the same page.
Six Degrees of Separation SyndromeCan you name your best employee? Someone you really, really trust. Reciprocity is a strong tool, but a distant relationship is if you want to be trusted.
If you are convinced that the person you do not know has the strength to either do and say things in a way that’s in the same realm as you do, invite them to join your network. It’s OK to make the first contact, but of course, it’s probably most efficient (and a little slower) to make five or six contacts.
Develop an action plan about how you will transition into a peer group for real business connections.หนังav As you are in a conversation, go through your active listening process; that is, simply listening with all your senses, both outward and within. This includes continually responding to what you are hearing, taking note of patterns in your colleague’s words, and then responding in a way that you both feel is helpful. You are paying complimentary attention and building a bond with someone who is just being insightful.
Keep in mind that it’s true that you may not have that common interest or a say in an ongoing relationship to do this by yourself,หนังjav but if you create an action plan that you can actually follow along to work together, you’re on your way to finding a new successful networking approach: buddy philling.
