The Connector’s Way: Focus on Relationship Building to Achieve Your Goals

Everything you want to achieve in business is connected to other people. Expert relationship builders—or connectors—know this. They start with the end in mind to align their relationship building activities with clear and specific goals that focus their efforts and increase their chances of success.

In this program you’ll learn how to:

  • Use the S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Time-Bound) criteria to set clear and specific business goals
  • Develop a strategic and intentional approach to relationship building
  • Identify and manage your connections to achieve your goals
  • Create a personal roadmap for relationship building success
  • Stay accountable to the goals that you set for yourself

Networking is an important way to build relationships with customers, prospects, and professional connections, but many people find it awkward and self-promotional. Connecting, on the other hand, is about developing and cultivating long term, meaningful relationships.

In this program you’ll learn how to:

  • Find groups that offer the best opportunities to make connections
  • Maximize the value of the groups and organizations that you join
  • Develop an actionable and measurable plan for creating connections in the real world and online
  • Build long-term trust to increase repeat and referred business
  • Leverage underutilized yet highly effective online strategies for relationship building
