    12 Tips for Effective Global Business Networking - Join in the...

    (Page 2 of 3 )

    Join in the conversations or threads. Donít be a lurker. Well, obviously there are some very good reasons why you joined the group Ė to learn, share, establish business contacts Ė and these are reason enough to post. If you stay in hiding, nobody knows youíre there and certainly nobody knows what your business has to offer.

    Offer help and advice whenever you can. If someone asks for help or advice, offer it in any way you can. Networking is about give and take. Help someone now and win help for yourself when youíre in need. Share and be helpful Ė itís a win-win situation.

    Leave your cultural, racial and personal biases outside the networking door. Many networking groups have international memberships. Be respectful of othersí cultures, ideas and opinions, no matter how strange they may sound to you. Making an effort to be courteous and supportive can go a long way in a business relationship.

    Keep your language clear and simple. Itís very possible that some people in your group may only have a basic working knowledge of English. After all, the percentage of people whose mother tongue is English make up only about 7% of the world's population. Even among those who speak English, language can easily be misunderstood. So clarity and a willingness to rephrase and simplify language are to being understood in global business communication.

    Be interested in what goes on in the group. After all, you did choose this group. Whether itís taking the trouble to learn another memberís culture, or explaining something peculiar to your industry or country, consider it part of the education that goes with global business.

    Donít discount an idea or an opinion because it comes from another culture or country. In other words, donít be too quick to pre-judge. There is no right or wrong, just a different approach to doing things. Ideas and opinions that appear to be Ďjust a little too far-flungí may well spark off a creative business idea thatís never even crossed your mind. Now wouldnít that be priceless!
