Learn to Connect with Confidence
Communicate with Intention is a coaching program designed to help introverted sensitive professionals gain skills and the confidence they need to build a business that supports their vision and the lifestyle they want.
The program is a 3-tier process designed to help one Connect with Confidence. Each tier builds on the other and includes the support one needs to be successful.
Networking is a tool that when mastered will help create amazing opportunities. Networking is relationship building and an essential tool to growing one’s business.
Yet, there is a stigma associated with the word ‘Networking.’ It often feels icky, scary, and downright intimidating. The ‘work’ in the word netWORKing is emphasized. The process often feels like hard, dirty, disgusting, WORK!!
Somehow, networking becomes a task that falls into the ‘should’ category. I know I should network, but if I do, I will be laughed at and will have to eat some worms.
I know this feeling well. I have registered to attend an event. I have paid to go to the event. I have put on my finest business attire, prepared for the event, talked myself into not cancelling, got into my car, drove to the end of my street then turned around and came home. I did this simply because something deep inside screamed “NO!!”
And, I have done this more than once.
I have also learned how to feel comfortable networking. I learned the hard way. You can read my story here.
Networking is an art, a skill and can be learned. It is not a competition for the best speaker or comedian awards. It is a tool when mastered that can create amazing opportunities.
I was the person who hid in the ladies’ room or pretended she had important phone calls to return. I secretly prayed the event would run out of time so I would not have to speak. I was willing to graciously give my speaking time to someone else.
I did not know one could show up 3 minutes before people were seated for the meal. I did not want to be late. So, I arrived early and was miserable.
I have 20 + years’ experience working both sides of the table, representing my business and administrating events. I have seen what works and a few things that do not.
I am also a shy, sensitive, introverted professional who learned to network. I HEAR and FEEL your pain.
Not only have I learned to network, but I am also the proud owner of a women’s networking organization. Our meetings are not the traditional ‘Hello my name Lisa. I sell pink widgets to people who have purple polka dots. Who do you know? I promise I will quit shaking your hand as soon as you give me 3 referrals.” Instead the programming is designed to help connecting with others feel less intimidating.
I can assure you learning to network is a process.
It took me a long time to feel comfortable networking. My ah ha moment, my breakthrough, is something that will help you fast forward the process.
I do not want you to take years to feel good when networking. I want to help you feel peaceful networking. I want networking to be an enjoyable experience for you.
I recently circled back to the organization where I began my networking journey. I shared my story of feeling scared, secretly wishing they would run out of time so I wouldn’t have to speak. As I spoke, one of the attendees grinned. I thought, she must remember how awkward I felt.
I learned she also felt extremely uncomfortable networking. The person I described hiding in the ladies’ room was also her.
She also shared she wished she had met someone like me, someone who could help her overcome her fears. She wished she had met someone who could help fast forward the process.
This is one of the ways coaching can help.
