As part of our Sun Devil Promotions leadership development plan, we help our team members develop the executive skills needed to excel in the business world. One of the most important of these aptitudes is networking.
Having a large contact list is vital to success in the digital age. Not only does Team Sun Devil Promotions often hear about cutting-edge techniques and business prospects, but we also gain access to the unique viewpoints of each person we know. We’re confident when we take smart risks that we’ll achieve our desired goals because we often know at least a few people who have been in similar circumstances and have either come out on top or learned a valuable lesson.
One of the first tips we share with our team members about networking is to look for ways to give before asking for anything. When connecting with new contacts, we’re more concerned with growing a long-term rapport than we are with any immediate benefits we might receive from the interaction. This leads us to listen more than we speak so we can find a way to be helpful to our conversation partners.
We are always excited at the prospect of networking because we hope to create impactful bonds with as many like-minded professionals as we can. Like Sun Devil Promotions on Facebook to find out more about our commitment to developing leadership traits.
