A first move is the first point of contact.
If you’re already a connector, you may know this to be true: what’s the first attempt to actually engage someone else, in person?
- You can be ready with safe, conversational, pleasant topics to discuss if you wish – like if you meet someone in the grocery store, standing in the same line.
- You can give an authentic appropriate complement – great shoes, terrific jacket – when you’re out and about.
- You can give a sincere complement to someone in a meeting – “I really appreciated your point on XYZ”.
Connectors know that a First Move is required to get the connectivity momentum started.
