Here are some topics we covered:
--> The right way to ask for feedback, and the wrong way
--> The crucial difference between people who act on feedback and people who don’t
--> The delicate dance between confidence and feedback – and how to make it improve your confidence rather than detract
--> How to know when you should ignore someone’s advice, vs. listen to it
And we cover this all in just 6 short minutes. I promise it will pep up your Friday :)
How to Connect With Powerful and Influential People
In the space of 26 minutes, I delivered my most tight and condensed lesson on that topic ever--complete with a live demo. A video, plus transcript and audio for download is available through that link.
In this lesson, I make the distinction between "good networking" and "bad networking," and explain exactly what the difference is.
What's more, I actually demo the difference live and unscripted on stage, with a member of the audience.
Have you ever wondered what a really good networking conversation sounds like?
Download this to your iPod and learn as you drive, or do errands, or walk around!
P.S. By the way, next week I'm releasing my biggest training ever--a private course in which I spill all my yet-unpublished secrets about networking and connecting. Be on the lookout for my next post about it.
