9 Networking Secrets From a Superconnector | LinkedIn
Michael Simmons stashed this in How To Be A Super Connector
9 is an odd number for Dave to choose. Could he not think of a tenth secret?
Actually, #1 and #9 are kind of the same:
1. Always be thinking about the other person, not personal gain. Other people come first. Since most people are concerned with their own personal gain, you'll quickly stand out. Albert Einstein once said, "Strive not to be a person of success, but a person of value."
9. Above all else, be there to help people. I've written before that "How can I help you?" is the most important phrase you'll say in a meeting. It's also the most important phrase for a superconnector.
I do like the Einstein quote.
Strive not to be a person of success, but a person of value.
