Building Your Network | How to Evaluate Meaningful Connections with Jordan Harbinger

Jordan Harbinger purple jacket“A core principle of my own life, and upon which this company was founded, is that one should leave everything and everyone better than they were before we met. By bringing positivity and abundance to others, you can’t go wrong.”

Jordan Harbinger has always had an affinity for Social Influence, Interpersonal Dynamics and Social Engineering, helping private companies test the security of their communications systems and working with law enforcement agencies before he was even old enough to drive.

Jordan has spent several years abroad in Europe and the developing world, including South America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and speaks several languages. He has also worked for various governments and NGOs overseas, traveled through war-zones and been kidnapped -twice. He’ll tell you; the only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of), just about any type of situation. Here at The Art of Charm, Jordan shares that experience, and the system borne as a result, with students and clients.

In this interview with Jordan, we talk about how to properly network, how to make the right first impression, and how non verbal body cues are so important. Networking tends to produce a negative reaction in people, but networking is basically just a social act. Even if it’s with someone who is in an unrelated field. Getting ahead in business is about who you know, and it’s incredibly important that you know how to make a great impression on others. I know you’ll get an incredible amount of information from this podcast! It’s also a great episode to listen to prior to any upcoming event!
