So a friend of mine, knows another person who networks in the sauna at the "tony" downtown club. He's very successful at getting clients this way. I guess if everyone is naked there is no opportunity for pretense.
My mind got to thinking about this. What would happen to all the rules of networking without clothes in the equation?
Would the handshake change? You certainly wouldn't want to miss the person's hand! That could be a bit awkward.
And what about networking body language? Would you come from the side of a new person, not making a full frontal approach? After all you don't know them that well.
And the big question of the day is where in the heck would you store your business cards? I don't even want to go too much further with that.
With all these thoughts running around in my head, I think that I will not adopt the skin-free approach to networking.
Anyone else dare to weigh into this?????
