Does Labor Day represent the end – or the beginning?

Does Labor Day represent the end – or the beginning?

Typically, Labor Day is seen as the rite of passage from summer to fall.  Instead of mourning summer’s end, one should take advantage of  Labor Day parties to make new friends and grow your network!   The tips below make this easy.

Don’t try to immediately sell yourself. Rather, ask questions to gain information about the person you are talking to, and learn about their interests and passions. Find out what’s special about them and how your can serve and encourage them.

Wear something unique that stands out and makes it easy for others to ask questions and start a conversation. Pins, custom nametags and embroidered logos can pique someone’s curiosity and beg a question.

Be a giver! Plan to leave each person you talk to with something of value. This could be as small as a smile or as significant as a referral. Other ‘gifts’ might include: information to help them deal with an issue or situation they’re facing, a relevant, helpful article or book, or someone they should meet and get to know.

Avoid the challenge of trying to balance a plate and glass while you shake hands and talk with others. When you’re eating, focus on that, but when networking, give your full attention to the person you’re talking to.

Have a positive attitude about the event you’re attending. Let the host or organizer know how much you appreciate the hard work she or he put into making the event a success.

Do your best to let everyone you talk with feel important, special and valued. Offer sincere compliments and pay attention to what they have to say.

May your Labor Day celebrations lead to many sparkling relationship successes!
