Understanding Behavioral Profiles
I’m looking forward to presenting “Behavioral Styles in Networking” next week on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 from Noon to 1pm EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME as part of @BNI – The World’s Leading Referral Organization’s #BusinessBuilders webinar series.
Understanding behavioral profiles is essentially about understanding the four different styles of behavior when looking at individuals. It is an excellent way to gain knowledge about how to craft your sales and reporting program to the style of communication most comfortable to the client as well as how to best connect with your fellow networkers. All customers and all networkers like to be communicated with in a manner that is most familiar to them, and knowing their personality profiles/behavioral styles helps you customize a sales or networking approach for each unique individual.
In the book Room Full of Referrals which I co-wrote with Dr. Tony Alessandra and Dawn Lyons, we offer insight into the following four different behavioral styles:
Go-Getters: (Driven, Bold, Decisive, Strong Desire to Lead)
Promoters: (Energetic, Outgoing, Fun-Loving, Positive, Talkative)
Nurturers: (Patient, Helpful, Understanding, Sentimental, Reserved)
Examiners: (Effective, Efficient, Thorough, Research-Oriented)
If you pay careful attention to the behavioral characteristics of others, you will improve how you communicate with them effectively by adapting to their style.
Join me on my webinar next week to learn more about these traits.
