Learn in Community, Grow with Collaboration

The last couple of months have involved a lot of training and collaboration.

Two Trainers for Referral Success 101 & Certified Networker
I mentioned in the last newsletter that Gail has already started co-teaching with me in Certified Networker and Referral Success 101.  She easily breaks down the the tremendous amount of information we cover into easy action steps.

If you would like support from Gail for your referral marketing, ask me about joining our Certified Networker program already under way on Tuesday mornings, 9:30am – 12:30 pm.

Or setup a one-to-one referral marketing and/or social media consultation with Gail.

In June, Referral Institute held its first Business Accelerator conference for its trainers from all around the world, including Dubai, India, Japan, Europe, and Canada.  

We loved being in the communityof other trainers where together 407bd55a-5335-447f-9a4b-79097cb212abwe improved our consulting, marketing, and sales skills.

We were so proud to have one of our own,Anna Scott, lead us in the Sales Dojo.

The trainers raved about her workshop and are already asking how they can hire Anna to come to their countries to train their clients.

The Platinum Rule: Treat Others the Way They Want to be Treated

Right after conference, I was certified in Room Full of Referrals & Platinum Rule Assessments.  You may already be familiar with the Room Full of Referrals workshops, which teaches you how to quickly recognize a behavioral style and how to adapt to others to build rapport and trust.

Platinum Rule Assessments gives your own personalized intensity and blend of the four styles.  For example, you may know that I am a Nurturer.  But do you know my second style?


It was at first surprising, but then made more sense as I think about how I do love to win.

There are also the Platinum Rule 360 Assessments, where 100 members of your network can anonymously asses your behavioral style.  If you really want to know how you can improve your referral relationships, the 360 Assessment is an eye-opening revelation..

The Platinum Rule Assessments are included in the Referrals for Life program, or can be purchased individually and comes with coaching so you know how to use these results in your Referral Marketing Plan.
