How to Become the Most Interesting Person in the Room

If you’re anything like me, chances are that you enter networking situations with some level of trepidation. It’s just not a natural thing for some of us.

We become so concerned about what we are going to say about ourselves and our businesses that we can’t enjoy the event. And we often end up talking only with people we already know because it feels safer.
In this video I share a simple approach that can change all that for you and make you the most interesting person in the room.

Question: How do you deal with these kinds of networking situations to make them more comfortable for you? Please leave a comment by clicking here.

    We can learn a great deal about ourselves by learning about others!

    Absolutely…thanks Bruce!

    Mike this is great stuff. In the recruiting/sales industry everyone wants to talk but nobody wants to listen. Successful people listen to reach the end goal and your steps get you on track in those regards. Great stuff can’t wait for more!

    Thank you Jake. I’m with you 100% on the notion that ‘nobody wants to listen.’ That’s why there is such power in asking questions and listening to the responses, then going deeper with more questions. In my estimation that is true communication versus just waiting your turn to speak and not taking in what the person you are talking with is sharing with you. Thanks for the positive feedback…and feel free to share ideas of topics you would like me to cover in future episodes.

    My regret was “waiting” , on others for permission to move on a new idea. To my surprise it is just another way to frustrate myself by staying hidden and not putting every thing out on my own table. By actually getting out a card table and putting all my work on it, I began to see with new eyes the possibilities. After laughing at myself I took the plunge and put my idea into action. Our first group met last Wednesday and it has been very exciting for all involved. The feed back from our group was enough to highlight several options to branch out into. I’m still laughing at myself and it feels great!

    Congratulations on taking action! Well done. It is amazing how much we can discount what we have and instead chose to wait until we have more or better. And, as you note, it is amazing how it feels to experience the breakthroughs, both large and small, that come from action. To feel the power of affirmation that we are on the right track, and to discover ways we can take our first steps to new levels. Can’t wait to see where this path leads you!
