The Traits of Highly Effective Networkers | THE SLOGANATOR

Rhonda L.Sher
What are the traits of a person who networks at the highest level and who gets results? Those people that seem to have a business based on referral and have many friends and resources are often the best networkers. They meet people they know wherever they go and find that every stranger is a potential new friend. How do they do this and what qualities to do they possess? I believe that these people do this because they genuinely like people and have the following abilities:

  1. The ability to be always be networking. They are never off duty and are always talking to the person in front of them or in back of them in a line or at a coffee shop. They are the person who starts a conversation with the person who is giving them a haircut, or with the man or woman standing in front of them in line t the bank or just about anywhere. They are always on.

  2. They have a smile and positive attitude. Positive people attract others like magnets. This brings referrals, friendships and so much more. They exude happiness and are happy to give first.

  3. They have great listening skills. These are the people who ask open ended questions and make eye contact with the people they are talking with. They do more listening than talking and they are genuinely interested and interesting.

  4. They are resourceful. Good networkers have an arsenal of other people they can refer to others for personal and professional needs and are willing to share these resources.

  5. They follow-up on referrals with the people they meet. The send cards, make calls, write emails, set and keep dates for personal visits and make sure that they keep in touch with the people they know.

  6. They are organized and look at networking as a valuable part of their business plan. Networking events are part of their schedule and they are selective about the events they attend.

  7. They are prepared, Good networkers always have business cards with them, a notebook to take notes about the people they meet, they dress professionally and they consistently network with others regardless of whether they need to or not.

  8. They are trustworthy. Good networkers know the value of reputation and they make sure that people think well of them and they never speak badly of others. They can be relied upon to do what they say and say what they will do.

  9. They express thanks to those who help them and give them referrals. This is critical to being a good networker.

  10. They belong to several networking organizations, association and groups and take positions of leadership.

  11. They are good public speakers. They give freely of their time to organizations and share their expertise with others.

  12. They have a good 30 second commercial or elevator pitch that is memorable so that others know what they do and can easily refer them.

  13. They spend time in places where they know their target market is likely to be and create power partners.

  14. They enjoy helping others. Good networkers really enjoy mentoring others and giving of themselves. They often take time with others to share information and make others feel important.

  15. They are students of personal growth. Good networkers are always learning and growing. They take courses, work with coaches, listen to books on tape, keep up with current events and love learning.
If you can master the traits described above, your business will soar. Look at the people you know who are good networkers and see if they have the traits I have discussed. I bet that they do. See what traits you have and what traits you can learn to master so that you can take your networking to the next level. You have nothing to lose and much to gain. Remember, you are only two minutes and two people from your next referral. Happy networking.
