Tip 4: Take an active interest in others

Ask questions to find out more about other people will create a longer term relationship because it is based on trust and respect and therefore will lead to a more profitable relationship.

The questions you ask should not be limited to only work, business etc. Be guided by the natural flow of conversation but asking people how far they had to travel to get to the function, did they find the venue ok, what their plans are for the holiday season are normally acceptable questions but they demonstrate your sincere interest in the person as a colleague.
