Two for Tuesdays: Networking Negatives

Despite a lingering migraine this afternoon, I am bringing you a Two for Tuesdays post! Last night, I got thinking about some of the negatives that I’ve heard from my lawyers about networking, and how to combat those. Today, I’m bringing you two of the top complaints I’ve heard and some suggestions for solving them.

Networking Negative One: Awkward Silences

There are some people who can talk with anyone – my brother-in-law is like that. Put him in a room with a bunch of people he doesn’t know, and he excels at connecting with them without awkward silences.

Two for Tuesdays: Tips from Taylor Swift

The more I see of Taylor Swift, the more of a marketing genius I realize she is. And not just because I can’t get “Shake it Off” out of my head this week. There are a few things that Taylor does that create rabid loyalty among her fans – and I mean rabid.

Before you start asking what Tay-tay and her music have to do with the law, first, ask yourself what it would feel like to have your clients feel the same way about you as Taylor’s fans feel about her? What if your clients trusted you so implicitly that they never took their business to anyone else? What if they called you first before making a business decision, because you’re their trusted adviser? What if your clients lined up every time you wrote or spoke, because they knew what you had to say was that valuable?

Rainmaking Recommendation from Jaimie Field: Time Pickpockets

As we seem to get busier and busier these days, this post from rainmaking expert Jaimie Field rings especially true. What are your time pickpockets?

***

Way too many times have I heard the sentence, “I don’t have enough time for rainmaking and marketing activities” (Rainmaking Recommendation #62).

I have proven through mathematics this isn’t true (Rainmaking Recommendation #91), I have told you that you don’t need to spend inordinate amounts of time on rainmaking activities to make a difference to your book of business (Rainmaking Recommendation #5), I have even told you to plan your time (Rainmaking Recommendation #92).

Two for Tuesdays: Leadership Lessons

As I mentioned last week, I had the good fortune to attend the LMA’s 2014 Leadership Conference, which was a whirlwind of sessions and networking. I was able to meet some great people, and really get down to brass tacks for planning for next year (LOTS of exciting things to come!).

But in among the planning and networking, we also had a couple of leadership sessions, which were incredibly valuable. I took away some great information, that I hope to be able to incorporate both in my work with the LMA as well as with my clients (ILN Specialty Groups, I’m looking at you).
