I have just watched this video about networking as a means of doing business. For me it is a wonderful reminder of key networking traits for success.
The key traits he mentions are these:
1. Follow up on referrals.
2. Have a positive attitude
3. Enthusiasm, motivation
5. Good listening skills
6. Network always
7. Thanks people
8. Enjoys helping others
10. Work their network
Perhaps you have your own strengths within this list. For me, the plan is to monitor my self-perceived progress in each area. Anyone is welcome to help me by commenting, here or in a private email.
Like with everything else in business, measurement is important!
