If not GoGetters can get bored with conversations easily Promoter Examiner Nurturer • Energy and a big smile are key! • Ask them many questions about themselves and be okay with them talking for a while • Keep all conversation very positive, upbeat and light. Don’t be too intense right at the beginning • Encourage each other share more personal information • Watch out for how opinionated you are on a subject when first meeting someone. It may not be the appropriate place to offer those opinions initially • Look at meeting more often at the start of a new relationship to move the process forward faster.. • Be willing to talk about more personal items • Try lengthening your sentences to sound more conversational • Share with them more about yourself. This allows to get to know you better.
  • 29. Areas of Improvement for Nurturers Others’ Networking Style Nurturer Your Networking Personality Go-Getter Promoter Examiner Nurturer • Dress to impress. Go-Getters are attracted to success ad they look at the way someone looks • While in conversation with them – ask them very direct questions – they are okay with it! • Find out why they are at the event and see if you can help them gain the results they are looking for. • Smile a lot! Promoters are attracted to positives, happy people! :D • Maybe talk a bit more with your hands and be a bit animated – only if that works for you. • Be sincerely interested in them and share how you think you might be able to help them • Have a more structured conversation with an Examiner. It will make them feel incredibly comfortable! • Do keep your conversation focused on work (don’t get personal) • Ask direct questions • Nurturers may spend a great deal of time chatting about personal items. Once you have the connection, ask them permission to talk about work • Mannerisms such as pace, hand gestures and tonality will be very comfortable between the two of you. So no need to change or do anything differently.
