    Social networking: How easy and how difficult?
    (The topic was once discussed on 19th August 2016)
     

    Every time you meet someone, you are networking. Every time you pick up the phone, you are networking. Every time you send an e-mail, you are networking. Every time you engage someone in conversation, you are networking. Every time you write a note, you are networking. Every time you attend a meeting or join a social club like Advance English club, you are networking.
    Yes, we are all networkers although some of us may be more effective than others; some may enjoy it more than others, and some do it with purpose while others only wander aimlessly through the process. The fact is like it or not, successful networking is essential for greater profits and increased business. Study the biography of any successful person and you can see how key relationships accelerated their growth.
    However, for many of us, it is not easy to develop a relationship from scratch especially when we want to connect with more successful and influential people. For people who are not naturally outgoing, things can be even more challenging. So, what should we do to become successful networkers? what are the best strategies to build a strong social network? Let’s join our discussion to explore the topic in detail.
    Questions for discussion:
    1. How many close friends do you have?
    2. Is it better to have few friends or many friends? How many good friends should a person have?
    3. What should shy people do to meet new friends or increase their social network?
    4. Situations:
    a. You want to get the attention of people who are more successful than you are. What should you do to network with those “celebrities” like a champ?
    b.You want to reach potential new clients or recruit new employees. What should you do to connect with them effectively?

    How to be nonjudgmental?
    (The topic was once discussed on July 30, 2016)

    No one wants to be called “judgmental” or “overly critical in an unhelpful way”, but it is so easy for us to fall into that trap. Just look around and almost everything can become the target of our judgment: body shape, gender, marital status, socioeconomic status, religion, passion, hobbies and so on. As humans, we tend to look for what is wrong with people, especially those who have qualities we would love to have. It can feel like a relief to know that “some gorgeous ones” seem to be less perfect than us. Such an opportunity may also make us feel superior and more secure about ourselves. However, researches have shown judging and criticizing people can be harmful to “the critics”. Specifically, judgmental thoughts can lead to a high level of depression, anxiety and stress-related health problems because our judgment usually tightly clings to our dissatisfaction. In fact, what we criticize in others tends to reflect what we do not like about ourselves. Given all this, it is not easy to be nonjudgmental when the world seems so wrong, and we cannot help but pronounce our judgment.
     
    Questions for discussion:
    1. Think about people who annoy you in some way (a man wearing high heels or a woman smoking, etc.). Can you let them be the way they are without desiring them to be otherwise?
    2. What is the difference between being critical and being judgmental? How do you know you are making a constructive criticism, not a problematic judgment?
    3. How do you respond when someone else is judging you?
    4. What should we do to avoid being judgmental?
