Connections - Manage Them Well

By Dorothy M. Neddermeyer, PhD

We make the strongest impressions when we are confident to talk openly and directly about our wants, needs and goals. Many people are willing to help us find fulfillment, but they are unable to help us meet our objectives when they do not know we need support.

When you share your desires, dreams aspirations and goals with your friends, peers, colleagues, they may well have ideas and connections that will serve you for many years into the future.
You can captivate people’s interest by simply being honest with them about what you are hoping to achieve. It is likely they, too, have been in a position wherein they required the assistance of someone. They will undoubtedly be glad to have the opportunity to pay it forward.
You can make a strong impression on others easily by simply sharing your thoughts and feelings with them openly and directly. The stories you tell will intrigue others, ensuring that you continually have a support system and help on your journey.

In time you will find yourself connected to people eager to hear more about your long-term plans. Your chances of succeeding are heightened when you initiate conversations with a wide variety of people in all areas of your life.

Some important tips to remember in making connections:

• Follow up with every person you meet or speak with about your goals, keep in touch with all your contacts periodically. A handwritten note or email letting the person know you enjoyed meeting them is priceless today, and worth every minute. Your goal is to solidify your initial impression as a savvy person and someone to be remembered.

• Give and you shall receive. Become involved with offering to assist someone. Volunteer for a charity, which can lead to connections and the development of relationships that are not only based on building business contacts, but on helping others.

• Make connections through social events. Invite colleagues, prospects, clients, and contacts to your home to establish a more personal relationship. An invitation to a social event also creates opportunities for reciprocal invitations and introductions to others' inner circle of contacts. Host an open house, buffet, or afternoon coffee. Your event does not need to be lavish to impress. It is the invitation that counts.
