Connecting with people outside your firm is essential to your health, well-being, and business. When you’re running a firm, though, this is something that can easily take a backseat to daily operations. Before you know it, you’re trying to remember the last time you talked with someone about something other than a project. In this episode, we offer some tips on building relationships outside of the office.
- Turn off your sales mode
- Be authentic
- Ask about the other person
- Put yourself in environments where you’re already comfortable
- Accept that relationships of any kind take time to build
- Building relationships is not the same as networking
