Just the other day in a networking meeting, a novice to the whole networking scene asked, "What is a one on one and what do you do when you have one?"
Great question. A one on one is when you make time to meet with another person.
When you plan to meet with that someone else, the idea should be to find out how you can help that person.
Some people are really, really good at this. Some people are really, really bad. Those people think it is an opportunity to sell and boy do they go about it full force ahead.
In the Northwest Ohio area, there are now over 300 people who have completed the Certiifed Newworker course. While it may not be 100%, most will ask, "How can I help you?" as the first or second question. I am proud of them. They are changing the voice of the business world. They are more about serving others rather than selfishing serving themselves.
What experience have you had when you've met one to one with another business person?
