An Attitude of Gratitude

On October 11th, 2017, posted in: Networking by

You might be wondering how does “An Attitude of Gratitude” connect with networking.

I recently had the pleasure of attending an Awards Luncheon. The invitation listed 11:00 am as the start time. I arrived on time and easily found a parking space. Score!

At check in, I was told doors open at 11:30 am.

I had two choices.

I could choose “Grrrhh, and be a Grouchy Grinch. I can’t believe they said the event starts at 11 when it realty starts at 11:30. Why are they wasting my time? I can’t believe they asked me to arrive early!!! Arrgghhh!!!”

Or, I could choose “An Attitude of Gratitude.”

I chose An Attitude of Gratitude.

In that 30 minutes,
• I connected with a handful of women I hadn’t seen in a long time.
• I had several meaningful conversations including one with a friend who met Grouchy Grinch. Thank you for the inspiration for this article.
• I received an in person reply to an email and commitment to work together.
• I had my photo taken with the award recipient.
• I made new connections.

That 30 minutes was an opportunity, an opportunity for me to connect to others with confidence, and time well spent.

Networking opportunities are everywhere.

Carpe Diem. Seize the Opportunity!

Networking is an Art, a Skill and Can Be Learned

The other morning at Chamber, the person who spoke before me sang his tagline while playing his ukulele.  I heard a handful of people gasp “How can you top that?”

There was a time I would have preferred to bolt to the nearest exit instead of following that.

“No way!”  “How can I follow that?”  “Oh crap, what did I plan to say?”  My negative self-talk piled on louder than the applause my acquaintance received for singing.

The other morning, my negative self-talk was nowhere to be found.

He sat down.  I stood up, smiled, took control of the audience, and gave my 30 second introduction.

Networking is not a competition for the best performer award.  It is a skill, an art and can be learned.

To your success,
