Networking Tip: If You Control the Questions, You Control the Answers

Have you ever lost control of a situation? Sure you have, we all have. How do you prevent this? Well, the easiest way to maintain control of the conversation is to be sure that the individual or group to whom you are speaking understands the value of what it is that you are saying or offering. You must ask productive questions. You must get to know your subjects. If you follow these simple rules, you will be the one to determine whether to open the doors to a business relationship or not. This way, you will not lose control of the conversation, and the answers may be well geared to what you are hoping for. So the Championship Networking tip is the combination of asking productive questions and knowing your subject.
