5 Steps for Thriving as Top Echelon Network Members

With the New Year right around the corner, I would like to throw a few definitions at you that will lay the groundwork for this blog post about Network success.

Entropy: In any natural process, there exists an inherent tendency towards the dissipation of useful energy.

Natural Selection: Differential survival and reproduction among members of a population or species in nature, due to variation in the possession of adaptive genetic traits. Natural selection, the major driving force of evolution, is a process leading to greater adaptation of organisms to their environment.

Some things are inevitable. What we incorporate into our lives to better ourselves makes the difference in terms of whether or not we survive the bad times.

We often adopt tunnel vision because we’ve found a sweet, comfortable spot in our work or play or at home. This will make us subject to entropy itself. Eventually, our useful energy will dissipate because it is the natural law.

What does this mean, Drea?

It means that you must constantly find and implement ways to make your recruiting desk more impenetrable to failure and maintain strength.

With that in mind, below are five steps for thriving as members in Top Echelon’s recruiting network:

1. Have active data (jobs and candidates) shared with the Network.

2. Make your Recruiter Profile page reflect who you are and what you do.

3. Call other recruiters who work in your industry/specialization and build relationships with them.

4. Participate in the Virtual Core Groups, if they apply to you.

5. Set a goal to not only establish a relationship with several other Top Echelon Network members, but also to make split placements in Top Echelon. Nobody should have to tell you at this point what benefits goal setting can bring to you.

Obvious? Maybe. Sometimes the obvious is obscured by our tunnel vision. Implementing the things in our lives that will make us thrivers will also hone our instincts, and we can only hope that we are ready for whatever may come.

Finding these additional things to make you stronger and smarter will then turn surviving into thriving!
