Getting the Most Out of My Current Referral Network

by Eric Imbody, Life Coach

A powerful checklist presented at the March 2002 CWPA evening gathering.

KNOW MYSELF – What are my values?  ...  Skills?  ...  Accomplishments?  ...  Life mission?  Am I willing to do what it takes to market and develop my business?  Am I willing to be who I would need to be to accomplish this goal?  What ways would I need to stretch to accomplish this?

CREATE A BALANCED LIFE – What actions contribute to my happiness?  … to my high-level wellness?  … to my optimism and confidence?  Do I have balance in the major areas of my life?

SHOW PASSION AND ENTHUSIASM – Am I clear about the “Why’s of my business?  How do I show that I value my work?  Do I communicate passion about my work and about developing my client relationships?

GET TO KNOW PEOPLE IN MY NETWORK AND ALLOW THEM TO KNOW ME – How can we mutually share our intentions, values, interests and needs to create better work relationships?  Do I give my full attention and effectively listen to my colleagues and clients?

BE COMMITTED TO THE SUCCESS OF PEOPLE IN MY NETWORK – Do I make referrals to my network?  Do I utilize the help and experience of those in my network?  Do I share resources that are helpful to those in my network?

BE PROFESSIONAL – Am I constantly improving my job-related skills?  Am I representing my profession with integrity?  Am I known for a high level of  service?  Do I offer value-added benefits for my customers?

CLEARLY SHARE ABOUT MY BUSINESS – Do I share the benefits (versus the features) of my products and services?  Do I share why my products and services are unique?  Do I routinely share 7-15 second “commercials” about what I do that are concise, clear and compelling?

BE EFFECTIVE WITH MY REQUESTS TO THOSE IN MY NETWORK – Am I clear about what I am asking for?  Do I utilize open questions as opposed to closed questions in making my requests?   Do I utilize my network for resources, advice and needed services?  Am I open, to learn from those I make requests of?

HAVE AN ORGANIZED PLAN OF SHARING WHAT I DO WITH OTHERS – Do I regularly utilize those methods of networking that work for me?  Do I acknowledge that all contacts I make are of value (new referrals, new contacts, learning how to be more effective, finding new resources etc.)?

SHOW APPRECIATION AND GRATITUDE TO THOSE WHO SUPPORT MY BUSINESS – Do I acknowledge the strengths, the expertise and the support of those who are a part of my network.?
