Given the importance of new business, it is vital that a business owner perfects their response to this common question asked when people meet for the first time.  This short article, should prove most useful, to anyone who has yet to perfect their elevator pitch.

How to Keep Networking from Draining You

How to Keep Networking from Draining You | itakethelead | Scoop.it

Whether it’s attending startup events, social gatherings, or happy hours, networking is a necessary part of every entrepreneur’s life. Seventy-eight percent of entrepreneurs agree that networking is crucial to startup success, which is why there are a myriad of articles online about how to master and love the art of networking.

 

But networking can be extremely draining. Imagine the countless hours entrepreneurs spend talking, traveling, and socializing with contacts and potential investors. Excessive social interaction can be physically and mentally exhausting for anyone — even extroverts. In fact, many of the founders I coach describe networking as draining, saying it sometimes robs them of the energy they need to work on actual business operations.

Overinvesting in one area to avoid doing work in another, time gets away from you. And behavior like that always catches up to you in the end.The bottom line: Just do the thing you're uncomfortable with and get it over with. In fact, do it first if you can.

Leaders Focus Too Much on Changing Policies, and Not Enough on Changing Minds | itakethelead | Scoop.it

The same research found that nearly 75% of those transformations fail to improve business performance, either short-term or long-term.

 

So why is transformation so difficult to achieve?

 

Among many potential explanations, one that gets very little attention may be the most fundamental: the invisible fears and insecurities that keep us locked into behaviors even when we know rationally that they don’t serve us well.

Business transformations are typically built around new structural elements, including policies, processes, facilities, and technology. Some companies also focus on behaviors — defining new practices, training new skills, or asking employees for new deliverables.

 

What most organizations typically overlook is the internal shift — what people think and feel — which has to occur in order to bring the strategy to life.

How To Ask For A Referral Without Sounding Entitled Or Desperate

How To Ask For A Referral Without Sounding Entitled Or Desperate | itakethelead | Scoop.it

If you’re close to somebody connected to the company–be it a friend, family member, or former colleague–you’re in luck. Assuming you have a good relationship, they will probably be happy to help you out.

 

“Be honest with them. Tell them what it is you’re ultimately looking for, and give them an idea of how they can help you,” recommends career coach Carlota Zimmerman.

 

Keep in mind, though, that a request for a referral–even when asking a close friend–is not a guarantee that you’ll receive one. If somebody can’t vouch for your work quality, they may not be comfortable putting themselves on the line for you. Because of this, it’s polite to give somebody an out, says Roy Cohen, career coach and author of The Wall Street Professional’s Survival Guide.

We have many clients, and they are all happy, and we realise that word of mouth is the best way to grow. But asking for referrals is never easy.

How To Communicate With People Who Disagree With You | itakethelead | Scoop.it

We’ve all been there: those times you need to argue your point of view to someone who you know disagrees with you. You immediately go to your keyboard and start to type out that 280-character tweet, the Facebook reply, or a paragraphs-long email. Surely the reason, logic, and sheer power of your written words will convince whoever it is who disagrees with you to see your point of view? But new research suggests these written arguments may not be the best approach.
