What happens in a 121 meeting?





 The objectives of having a 121 meeting are to:




  • Confirm you like the person;
  • Build rapport;
  • Research their business;
  • Appraise their skill level, experience, qualifications and ability;
  • Establish if developing the relationship further is a good use of your time.

Here are some questions you might ask that will give you a greater understanding of the other person:

  • Why did you choose your present role?

  • What is your expertise?

  • How do you know you did a good job?

  • What is your biggest project currently?

  • What contacts are looking for?

  • How can I help you? (make sure you mean this!)

Note they are all open questions and geared to understanding what makes the other person tick. People enjoy talking about themselves and these questions are designed to get people talking passionately about what they do, and about their successes.

Remember - the key to developing relationships is to follow up!

Are you too focused on meeting new contacts?



Are you networking with the right people?
