Nice article on Networking by Stuart Jaffe

5 Jun

Just came across this article on networking by Stuart Jaffe. He demystifies networking in simple terms and the way it should be. Stuart also lines up few pointers to sail anyone through those initial conversations.

After reading his thoughts, I tried to see if relationship model would be able to explain those pointers. The first step of any relationship according to the model is liking. For any networking or relationship to blossom, it is very essential that the person should like you. Only when he/she would be genuinely interested in your business proposition or any other thing.

But how do you make other person like you?

What should be done in that moment, that he connects with you?

How should one behave in those initial conversations?

Stuart outlines some simple yet effective means of increasing the probability of other person liking you. Read out his effective means here.
