1:1's are the key to your success in building successful business relationships. Whether you are building relationships with friends, clients, referral partners, or collaborative partners you must have two objectives in your 1:1's:
Find a commonality. This is accomplished by getting to know who they are, not just what they do. Ask questions such as; Where are you from? Tell me about your family. What brought you to your business?
Add value to the other person - You can only do this through your knowledge and experience. Ask questions such as: What are your goals? What are your challenges? How can I help you? These types of questions will help you uncover enough information to add value.
If you follow these two objectives you will find it easier to develop the relationships you require to develop more business.
