Dr. Ivan Misner is the Founder and Chief Visionary Officer of BNI (Business Network International), the world’s largest referral organization. He is known as the foremost authority on Networking, Word Of Mouth Marketing and Referrals. In this video he shares the Top 5 Networking Traits for greater success, based on a survey of more than 3400 people.
The 5 traits shared in this video will allow you to make your networking time for effective. It is great to go out and network, but when doing it for business reasons you are looking for some type of bottom line results. Those results could be direct referrals, new strategic alliances, introductions to referral sources and network partnerships. However, none of these will happen if you are not building some type of trust and confidence in the first few minutes you meet someone. Sometimes, you may only have a minute or two to speak with someone and that first impression could make or break the relationship.
The power of these 5 traits is that they are not opinions from Dr. Misner or any other networking expert. They are the cumulative opinions of 3400 people out networking every week, just like you. By learning, knowing and practicing them you will be able to get greater results from your networking with less time and effort.
After you watch the video, let us know if you think there is one that we missed. We would love for you to add to the list. Also, let us know if you have any questions about the video content or this topic matter in general.
