Building a network of advocates results in a creating a responsibility to the people in that network. As you engage new people, it is critical that you also validate those individuals.

We look at the steps of Motivational Listening for building a business network. In this segment we also discuss how to "test the waters" and see if a potential contact is interested in making a connection. Using defined steps, we accomplish this in a non-threatening and non-committed manner.
