Please STOP. Prior to reading on, pause for just a minute re-read the title of this article and truly think about what it might mean to you in the next few years.
Do you think you’re going to need better bridges to overcome the ever-changing barriers we’re going to be facing, to move on to unknown opportunities and take advantage of the great potential which awaits us?
I can’t think of a more appropriate time than right now to be Networking for Personal Productivity! That’s why we chose that title for our seminar … a training session that’s growing in popularity and demand as more and more people acknowledge the tremendous potential in People Power!
Over the past few months, I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of speaking to a number of networking groups, some informal and some professional. I certainly expanded my own network by meeting a number of great people from which I learned a great deal.
Over that same time period, I’ve realized how many people in the business world know very little or nothing about the fine art of networking. They’ve never been exposed to the amazing benefits, the numerous and growing number of accessible strategies, or the process which will lead them on their journey to success.
Zig Ziglar, legendary author and speaker, has always shared the following wisdom: “You can get everything you want in life, if you just help enough other people get what they want.” That, of course, is the true value of successful networking.
Harvey MacKay, noted author and business guru says: “If I had to name the single characteristic shared by all truly successful people I’ve met over a lifetime, I’d say it’s the ability to create and nurture a network of contacts!”
That’s a powerful statement in today’s challenging times.
The following leaders all credit their phenomenal success to the networks they created during their careers:
- Bill Gates (Microsoft)
- Michael Eisner (Disney)
- Oprah Winfrey (talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist)
- Jack Welch (G.E.)
- Herb Kelleher (Southwest Airlines)
In addition, study after study has determined:
- A referral generates 80% more results than a cold call!
- Approximately 85% of all jobs today are found through networking!
- Most people you meet today have at least 250 contacts!
Now you can understand how crucial it is to take advantage of the many benefits of Building Better Bridges by Networking for Personal Productivity!
