Rise and Out-Shine Your Competition

Filed under: Network Training — Larry James @ 7:00 am

Your future as a business professional is yet to be written. The actions you are taking now will truly influence what you are able to accomplish in the future.

The resources in your network of support – if used proficiently – will help you organize, plan and help create a solid reputation that will keep you moving forward, consistently connecting with others on your way to the top. While being in the right place at the right time often has its rewards, people who are savvy networkers know how to put themselves in the right place at the right time to meet the people they need to know and who need to know them. They know how – and are willing to get out of – their comfort zone to do what needs to be done. They are calculated risk takers. They know and uplift the sacred rules of effective networking.

Here’s a radical idea! Drop out of networking for a couple of weeks and emerse yourself in reading several networking books and lots of articles about networking. Put yourself in a regimen of rigorous training; training that will have you emerge as someone whose networking expertise will surely find you fully prepared to outshine your competition. Who knows? It could make a big difference.

It’s especially a great idea if you feel like networking is not working as well as you would like. Perhaps I should remind you of the definition of insanity: “Doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result!”
