Networking Tip: KWINK your memberships

Wednesday Brian Tracy was in Antwerp to give a one day seminar about High Performance Leadership.

I would like to share two of the many things I picked up from this seminar.

Brian talked about KWINK and he also shared a Turkish Proverb. They both relate to the same thing. So let’s look at them and see how we can apply them to networking.

KWINK stands for: Knowing What I Now Know.

It is about Knowing What I Now Know, would I hire the same people again, would I offer the same products or services, would I do the same investments,…

The Turkish Proverb was:

“No matter how far you have gone on the wrong road, turn back.”

When we relate these two things to networking, we can ask ourselves: Knowing What I Now Know, would I become member of a particular organisation again?

If no, turn back, go another road and become member of another organisation.

Not sure which one to join? Ask your network. Tell them what or who you are looking for and which organisations they know. Still no good answers? Ask your colleagues, customers, suppliers or partners which organisations they are member of.

Have a great networking day !
