The Newest Way To Make Your Business Network Great

In his book The 5-STAR Business Network (http://bit.ly/5-STARBN), Vivek Sood mentions the concept of synchronicity, and focus on Carl Jung’s perception of it. The concept of synchronicity has a specific definition in Carl Jung’s mind.

For him, it is a causal connection of two or more psycho-physic phenomena. He started to use this word in the 1920s to describe two or more casually unrelated events happening together in a meaningful way. Although we could write pages on this concept, a short definition would be a coincidence that is not senseless. Carl Jung observed this phenomenon on a patient for the first time.

A patient dreamt about a golden scarab, and the next day, the same insect hit his cabinet’s window. The question that comes up with this kind of situation is: Was the relationship between the events random or was there some hidden force?

The concept of synchronicity has evolved through the 20th century and many studies exist about it, with many theories and explanations. However, this is Carl Jung’s thought in which we are interested. Indeed, his vision of meaningful coincidence is what I think happens with business relationships. Synchronicity is what enables our business networks to expand and to create more value.

To pursue his work, Jung started to collaborate with Wolfgang Pauli. This collaboration lasted for several decades, making conjectures about synchronicity. They conjectured that with a link between the apparently disparate realities of matter and mind were existing. Pauli called it a “missing link”.

While accretion and synergy are two other concepts that create value, synchronicity is the best. Indeed, synchronicity provides even more multiplied effects than synergy, whereas we usually think synergies are the best we can achieve.

Global business networks can become very valuable because of synchronicity power. While synergy provides a good value (2 + 2 = 5, whereas with accretion 2 + 2 = 4), synchronicity is the most valuable. Its mathematical principle is described as follows: 2 + 2 = 22. This is the power contained in this concept.

Therefore, you must focus on this concept to develop your business networks and make it more valuable than by using simple synergies or accretion. Visualization, if not faith, is compulsory to be able to understand this concept and make it work for you. Besides, the concept of synchronicity relies on key principles that may not be available for anyone. In fact, it is all about abundance of outcomes based on wisdom, creativity and cooperative effort. This is the cornerstone of the value of synchronicity.

Consequently, business networks are great and work successfully for your business when synchronicity is the main ingredient. This is the most powerful ingredient that can help you build a great business network. However, this is still a matter of coincidences, although they are meaningful. In fact, the economic metaphor that can be utilized for synchronicity strategy is the free networks.

Accretion relies on free markets. When your strategy evolves to improve the outcomes, through synergies, the appropriate term is “managed markets”. Then, the best strategy, which includes synchronicity, leads to free networks, which is much more significant and valuable than free markets or managed markets.

Thus, step-by-step, you can improve your business strategy, using your business network and gradually implementing strategies of synchronicity. Synchronicity will create the best value through a great business network.

    A well-designed employee advocacy program can help you get more out of your employees without needing to push them too hard. Take the points discussed today into consideration when designing your program and be patient with yourself and your employees. A commitment to making people feel good about the work they do, and about the company they work for, will pay off in the end with more engaged employees who are willing to advocate for your company in any setting.

    I recommend starting with people you already know – including the many you have probably lost touch with iver the years. Reconnect with them via linkedin. Make sure you send a message with the link request to remind them how you know them. Prioritise your contacts and then start meeting or phoning them and get them to introduce you to people they think you ought to meet.

    Networking events work well but why not run your own dinner parties and get a couple of people you know to invite along people they know and think can be of mutual help. There are people everywhere and we never know who someone knows so just get comfortable with saying hello and speaking to people and your network will very quickly grow – the trick is keeping in touch and nurturing the relationship – linkedin and twitter are great for that

    There are many business networks ready to provide help on business. Among them I have found that Angel Investment Network is the best one to connect with. It helps entrepreneurs with great business ideas find the funding and guidance they need to grow their businesses and succeed. AIN connects entrepreneurs with a global network of nearly 100,000 investors so that they can find an investor with the right credentials and industry experience to grow their business. Entrepreneurs register and submit a business proposal using a simple proposal template. Once they have created their proposal it is listed on the site for investors to analyse. There is a free novice package available to trial the service, but the paid Pro packages grant access to more features, greater exposure and ultimately a far higher success rate.
