Do you know a guy who knows a guy? Ever notice how there are certain kinds of people out there who seem to know someone for anything, or job that you need done? They are like human rolodexes, with a wide network of friends, acquaintances and connections.
These kinds of people are known as connectors. And their special talent is bringing people together. They have a diverse friendship base, and are on good terms with them all. Connectors are capable of identifying the unique skill set or trait that makes each person valuable. They are also incredibly intuitive. They can spot an opportunity. Often they create the opportunity by visualizing an overlap of skills and needs between two strangers – and then setting the gears in motion to make that meeting happen.
If you are shy, or awkward around people you don’t know very well, a connector is a good friend to have. They are people people. Gregarious, sociable and warm, these icebreakers act as the catalyst to a valuable relationship that you may not have forged on your own.
One thing you will find when you shop at Simmons Mattress Gallery in Broadway and Coquitlam is that the staff there is made up of natural Connectors. It’s a part of the hiring criteria. They want people who are intrinsically helpful. The staff know mattresses backwards and forwards, but they also know where to get the best sheets, bedroom furniture, stars for the ceiling and anything you can think of. It’s a special kind of sales staff that can put you in touch with the right people and make sure that your shopping experience is a rewarding one.
