Karen Dietz's curator insight, June 15, 2014 2:14 PM

I often get this question: how can I use stories or story tools when networking? My replies are much like my colleague Shawn Callahan's: it's less about the stories you tell and more about the questions you ask to evoke stories from others.


As Maya Angelou has said, "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."


Oh, so true! So here Shawn has written a quick post that demonstrates the kinds of questions you can ask at networking events that will generate stories. Remember, networking is not about broadcasting who you are, it's about developing meaningful relationships with others so you can know who you want to do business with.


Enjoy these questions and I bet you'll get ideas for additional ones you can ask.

Ten Tips for Building Stronger Networks in Work and Life

Ten Tips for Building Stronger Networks in Work and Life | Business Club | Scoop.it

Most people understand that to be successful, they need to network. But actually going out and doing it is another matter. People “are daunted by the task and believe it requires inauthentic, uncomfortable behavior and is an activity that is inconsistent with focusing on job performance,” says Jeffrey Pfeffer, a Stanford professor of organizational behavior, who covers the subject of networking as part of his Paths to Power elective course. Too often, he says, people view networking “as something that ‘is not them’ or that they could not see themselves doing.”

For many, success comes with networking. Take for example, the Insurance industry, or for that effect Multi -Level Marketing schemes. In many cases it is all about knowing a large number of people. You might as well call it the Social Quotient, or Social intelligence! Isn't it high time we learned more about the art of building a sound Social Network?

No Office, No Problem: 5 Strategies For Managing An All-Virtual Team

No Office, No Problem: 5 Strategies For Managing An All-Virtual Team | Business Club | Scoop.it

Plenty of people work from home occasionally, and plenty of managers work with people in different offices. But what if no one is in the office? What if your entire company consists of people working wherever they want to work?

 

That’s the reality for a growing number of companies that find central real estate unnecessary. Managing an entirely virtual team can be a challenge, but a few strategies make it quite possible, so you can reap the benefits of this new model.

 

“It is a big recruiting draw for the right type of person,” says Lisa Breytspraak Jasper, managing partner of IT strategy consulting firm Thought Ensemble, whose 13 employees are all virtual. “It allows us to lead our lives very flexibly”--and still get stuff done.

Google produces 200 units of #self-driving cars: no steering wheel, no gas pedal, no brakes See the video. | Business Club | Scoop.it

We’re now exploring what fully self-driving vehicles would look like by building some prototypes; they’ll be designed to operate safely and autonomously without requiring human intervention. They won’t have a steering wheel, accelerator pedal, or brake pedal… because they don’t need them. Our software and sensors do all the work. The vehicles will be very basic—we want to learn from them and adapt them as quickly as possible—but they will take you where you want to go at the push of a button. And that's an important step toward improving road safety and transforming mobility for millions of people.

Google has done it: a true self-driving car. Not a production car that they retrofitted with technology but one designed and built from scratch. Wow. See the video, impressive - even though the design is questionable the technology is overwhelming.


This really make a huge leap to demonstrate what future transportation systems may be like. Think of a mini office or entertainment on wheels. Kind of like a train or a plane, you become a passenger.


Businesses should look at this carefully as it paves the way for revolution in the supply chain - non wonder this comes out of military projects looking to make the supply of armies more efficient and less costly. When will we see a retailer - a grocer for example - embrace this technology to deliver groceries at your door? Amazon?
