Take the Lead in Your Networking
For most members, you know it is no secret that we launch a lot of great leaders in Rainmakers! We provide multiple platforms for our members to step outside their comfort zone and “Be More.”
For those of you who are already in leadership within this awesome organization of people who “Pay It Forward,” we hope this short message inspires you to leverage Rainmakers to a higher level and for those of you who are not yet plugged in to leadership, we hope this message inspires you to jump in!
Amongst many, here are five things that Leaders in Rainmakers create for themselves:
Perception is reality. How do you show up to others? Are you being recognized at events? How about leveraging the opportunity to publicly speak? Or leading small groups during Rainmakers activities? All of these things are available to help build your credibility among your peers.
2. Recruiting strategic partners versus transactional business
Once you are plugged into a leadership role, we are recruiting for you specifically. You let us know who you need to meet and we are bringing them to an event and introducing them to you as a leader in the organization.
3. Commitment to frequency and universe
When you are in Leadership at a particular Rainmakers event, you are seen at the same place over and over for frequent touch of those you have already met. Plus, you grow your personal database each month with the guests who attend your event.
4. Help and get helped
When you are in Leadership at Rainmakers, you have a home base, your event, to help your strategic partners and for them to help you. What does this look like? You bring guests for each other to introduce face to face.
Leaders know how to leverage time. Being in leadership for an event allows you regularity in leveraging your time to touch multiple people at once and to make new contacts. This position allows and teaches you to consolidate many meetings into the event time.
Take the lead, and see GREAT results!
