Authors of the Book Work the Pond Darcy Rezac, Gayle Hallgren-Rezac and Judy Thomson put out a weekly networking tip. Periodically I will be posting their tips. If you haven’t picked up a copy of Work the Pond yet I strongly suggest you do, it’s on the top of my books to read list for sales people and professionals of any discipline. Here’s the tip for this week:
Team Building Made Easy
Do you have new people starting at your organization after Labor Day? Instead of having your new employee introduce him or herself at the next department meeting, have an existing team member do the honors. Connect them up before the meeting. Have your new recruit share enough background info to allow that person to do a Glowing Introduction an interesting and flattering way to sing someone’s praises. It’s a great way to create a bonding experience in your firm.
