AmSpirit Rx (“Working” The Room)

In his book, The Fine Art of Networking, Andrew Chiodo, a personal branding and public relations expert, shares his thoughts on “working the floor:”

“Try positioning yourself in the neighborhood of a person you want to meet. Once you establish eye contact, you have a chance to introduce yourself. Do so quickly, offer a card and ask for one in return.”

Give it a try … you will find that it is effective.

AmSpirit Rx (Hold Your Fire)

It is easy to do – before someone else is finished sharing a thought or answering a question, you interject or answer. This is not only potentially embarrassing, but it is a telltale sign that you might not be terribly interested in listening.

Do not jump to make conclusions about what is being said. Listen. Really listen. Notice their tone, voice inflection and body language. You should hear them out and take a deep breath before you respond.

You will likely have a better response and we will certainly have a better conversation.

For example, “Just met with my #amspirit lunch partner and got a great referral.”

This will allow all those interested to quickly learn what is being said on Twitter about AmSpirit Business Connections.

AmSpirit Rx (Grab The Paper)

When it comes to networking, never underestimate the importance of staying up on current events.

Devote time each day to reading newspapers, trade journals and business publications. Spend time in the car listing to the radio. Watch the evening news or some other newsworthy program.

Why is this so important? Simple. The information you glean (even from catching the ball game) will make you more informed. This will give you more to talk about and make you more interesting to talk with. In short, being better informed will allow you to add more value to your network.
