Helping Mind

When I meet with people, my goal is to try to figure out what I can do to help them.  Now it is not my job to determine what this is without their help!

That's what conversation is all about.  It is finding out what's important, what's a challenge and what they may need or want help with.  Sometimes I try to make this more difficult than it needs to be. But I have to remember to just keep it simple.

For example: 

This past week, one person wanted to know how to get registered into the BNI website.  I could easily help him with that.

Another person needed to know her username to get into the same site.

Another person wanted to know if I had the phone number of someone.

Another person needed to know if I had a connection to a handyman.

Easy stuff, but it made their life easier and perhaps even more successful.

The key is listening and having the agenda to be helpful rather than trying to sell!
