What happens in the meetings?
Each Integrative Change meeting is facilitated by the local Chapter Director. At the beginning of the meeting, there is typically “open networking” where you can socialize with other members and visitors. The Chapter Director will then facilitate a conversation about different topics related to business networking as well as give everyone a chance to speak about their services and what is a good referral for them. Time at the end of the meeting is usually reserved for questions, testimonials and announcements.
What if I want to bring a Visitor to a meeting?
Yes you are encouraged to bring as many visitors to the meetings as you can as long as it doesn’t conflict with the category of another member for their region. A visitor is allowed to visit one meeting before they are asked to apply.
What are some tips for making the Integrative Change Network work for me?
- Have a “Helpers Reward” attitude. Focus on helping other members and you will see a great return.
- Attend all the meetings. Dress professionally, be ready to help each other and promote your services in a clear manner.
- Complete the 360 Business Assessment. This includes two coaching sessions to help you set goals and strategize appropriately for your practice.
- Meet with all IC members 1:1. This is the best way to learn more about each other’s services in more detail. 1:1s typically lead to increased referrals.
- Check the Networking Tools section of the website for educational tools and tips:http://integrativecha.wpengine.com/index.php/current-members/networking-tools
