Are you adding value to every conversation that you are having this week at NASPA?
Remember that part of learning is teaching — each time you are in a conversation, try to add something to the conversation — even as a Graduate Student, I have something valuable to bring to the table, even when I meet with SSAO’s.
I went to the session yesterday geared towards SSAO’s and connecting them with Twitter & social media. After the session, I had a great conversation with a woman from Florida who was looking to set up her own Twitter account. We talked through the process & connected. I was the one handing out my business card saying “call me, email me, whatever – I will help you get this set up!”
How cool is that?
I love that in this profession of learning and life long learners we really do value that every one has something to share & we can get something from every interaction.
So – my challenge is as stated above: Add value to every conversation. No matter how small – add value because you have tons to offer.
