Know, Like and Trust is the accepted mantra for successful networking. But these attributes need to be earned.
Business networking is a process where you develop long term relationships with strategic alliances for mutual benefit. It’s about the people you know and meeting new people through other people. Your network is only as strong as the way you manage it. Some say that if you’re not networking, you’re not working!
If the thought of entering a room full of strangers makes you uneasy, then JRL can help you. We offer 1-2-1 coaching on networking and networking workshops to bring the whole experience into your comfort zone.
If you’re new to running a business, or in a new role, and need to learn how to network effectively, then work with a JRL networking expert to remove the anxiety and see for yourself how enjoyable and rewarding networking can be.
When you network effectively, you will gain a new set of colleagues and likeminded business professionals with whom to share issues, seek solutions and secure introductions to potential new clients.
So why bother to network? Ultimately it can get you more business more easily.
As networking can make a big difference to you and your business, JRL runs Networking Workshops. Contact us for more information.
Here are some rather more empowering questions to consider:
Remember STRATEGY when you network:
S = make your presentation Short and Succinct
T = Think in advance
R = remember the Results you wish to achieve
A = Address the type of clients you wish to be introduced to
T = Time is of the essence, 60 seconds is optimal
E = speak with Energy and Enthusiasm
G = set a Goal to attain
Y = focus on what You want to achieve
