professional networking tipBy no means am I taking credit for this tip. I learned it from Jim Westerfield, five star luxury home real estate professional at Royal Shell Real Estate.

Jim probably learned it from someone else. No matter, I felt compelled to share it with you.

When someone asks you for suggestions, input, here is a best practice response called

 

The Rule of 3

 

Step 1: Say, “I am thinking of 3 things.”

 

Step 2: Proceed to provide those 3 things in a concise manner.

 

By first making the statement  “I am thinking of 3 things,”
you accomplish 3 things:

 

1)Buys your brain time to think and organize thoughts

2)Shows your preparedness (even if you’re not)

3)Limiting to 3 doesn’t overwhelm the other person

Seems so simple yet it can create a powerful impression in the eyes of the asker.

Plus by sticking to three things it creates a predictable end point to your response so the asker never feels like they got themselves into a long drawn out conversation.

 

Try it next time someone asks you for a suggestion.
