Making it count.com Job Skills: 10 powerful networking questions By Al “The Inspiration” Duncan

4. What separates you from the competition? This question gives a person permission to tout his or her unique abilities. Be sure

The power of networking is common knowledge nowadays. Knowing how to consistently and effectively do it isn’t so common. Networking is simple, but far from easy. Whenever I’m speaking to a group about networking at least one person asks, “But what do you say (or talk about) when you first meet someone?” And someone else will inevitably ask, “What do you say (or do) when there’s a lull in the conversation?” My response to both questions is the same: Make fewer statements; ask more questions. The timeless advice offered by Dale Carnegie in How to Win Friends and Influence People is that you “allow the other person to do a great deal of the talking.” The easiest way to keep the other person talking and loving you the entire time is to ask the right kind of open-ended questions.

to ask this question in a polite and inquisitive tone of voice so that it doesn’t sound like you’re challenging the person. VARIATIONS: What separates your business/company/ organization from the competition? What separates your school from other schools like it? 5. What one thing would you do if you knew that you could not fail? A truly thought-provoking and inspiring question. (You should think about your own answer.) It helps and encourages a person to dream and when she revisits the dream there’s a chance that you’ll come to mind often. That’s powerful. VARIATIONS: What one thing would you do with your business if you knew that you could not fail? What one thing would you do if you knew you were guaranteed to succeed? 6. What is the strangest or funniest incident you’ve
