The Who Do You Know Contact List Method

Making a Contact List is the important 1st Step in the 6-Step Team Builder Roadmap. Avoid working from memory there are a lot of reasons why that doesnt work. This method is tried and tested as an excellent way of building up an excellent initial contact list from memory, address books and other records. You can give this to a new team member or, better still, lead them through it by phone or in a WebMeeting. Give them a copy afterwards to use with others and to go through again in their own time. You can, of course, do it on your own, or ask a partner to do it with you, reading the questions while you write down the names.

If you are leading someone through this

First explain the process Each person (if a couple or more) to have a pad and pen Make it a contest who can get the most names Explain The Rules

The Rules
You are not allowed to pre-judge if someone will be interested. Dont worry about the details just a name or a mini-description will do. You can check contact details later. Any name will only appear once on your List, even if they come up in the answer to more than one question. If you have another list or source of personal contacts for example, a membership list of some kind), you can write down a note of the list during this exercise, rather than all the individual names.

Now, here we go..!

Who Do You Know? Answer the questions and build your list
1. Who do you know who is at the same, or a higher, level of ambition than you. (at least one name)

2. Who do you know that you respect? 3. Who do you know who is already in business for themselves, self-employed, or previously failed in making a conventional business work? 4. Who do you know who is a Manager, Team Leader, Supervisor or Foreman? 5. Who do you know who is a Leader in an organisation, club or charity etc.? 6. Who do you know who is a life and soul of the party type? 7. Who do you know who is on the same, or a higher, social level than you? 8. Who are your closest friends and relations? (say in 30 secs but let them carry on until they stop writing) 9. Who would you invite to a party, a wedding or any other big social function you might be organising? 10. Who are your known acquaintances (neighbours, old and new people youve met through business, social activities, recreational activities, on holiday etc) 11. Who do you work with? 12. Who did you work with? 13. Who do you do business with? 14. Who do you socialise with? (inc. religious group, school, sports, clubs etc) 15. Who do you know who has connections in Europe?

Call the ones with most asterisks first! and keep adding to your List!
There are other good memory joggers around. Here are a few suggestions: 1) In your Yellow Pages book you will find an alphabetical list of business types. Go through this and ask yourself, Who do I know who is a.? 2) Take the letters of the alphabet in turn. Ask yourself, Who do I know whose first name begins with A. Then do the same with family names. 3) F.O.R.M.S. Friends/Family, Occupation/Organisation, Recreation/Religion, Members, Sports/Social 4) F.R.O.G.S.
