4 Tips to Building Your Circle of Influence
Looking to surround yourself with people to level you up? Here are 4 ways you can choose who you surround yourself with and make a greater impact on your daily life from the Thrive Events team.
1. Group Activities
Thrive Events doesn't just gather for promotional events. Off the clock they make sure to sign up for spin classes, workshops with industry leaders and restorative yoga nights. Whether you are exercising your mind or your body, you get more out of it with a group! Not only does a group mean accountability, but also surrounding yourself with those who are better than you will always challenge you. If you're uncomfortable, you're growing!
2. Attend Conferences
Napoleon Hill said it best, "If you are the smartest person in the room you are in the wrong room." Spending all your time at work on your own island can oftentimes stunt your growth. Instead, look for mastermind groups, conferences and networking sessions to rub elbows with those who are in positions you want to be in. The Thrive Events team attends quarterly networking conferences in places like Dallas, Texas and Newport Beach, California. These seminars allow the team to ask questions to lead them to their future goals personally and professionally.
3. Creative Community
We are used to scrolling through Instagram and getting creative inspiration from Pinterest, but sometimes the most inspiring individuals are right next to us. Thrive Events structures their morning meetings for a creative culture. No desks, no cubicles, no stuffy meetings. Instead whiteboards, word of the day prompts and an office magazine all curated by the staff encourage individuality and creative expressions.
4. Put Social back in "Social Networking"
Instead of spending social hour on a social media hour, invest in setting up an actually social meeting. Studies show social media overuse can lead to anxiety and depression so ditch the scroll and set up a coffee date. Putting social skills to good use promotes personal development. You never know when that one relationship will foster an open door for you or someone you know. It's not always about what you know, but who you know.
