Business Etiquette Mistake #18: Getting Distracted
“Respect is how to treat everyone, not just those you want to impress.” – Richard Branson
Chances are, you’ve talked to someone at a networking event who’s clearly lost interest in you.
Master networker and author Keith Ferrazzi explains, “There is nothing worse than the smarmy eye-darter who’s constantly looking around the room for someone more important to talk to.”
So, always pay full attention to whoever you’re speaking to.
Richard Branson said, “Respect is how to treat everyone, not just those you want to impress.”
Stay focused on them — regardless of how much influence they may or may not have.
It’s amazing how people ‘light-up’ when they feel fully engaged and listened to.
