Stewart Emery joins Dr. Misner to talk about his new book, Who’s in Your Room?, which was the theme for International Networking Week 2014.
Imagine that you live in just one room. With you in this room are all the people in your life. In this room there is just one door, and the door operates just one way: anyone and anything that enters cannot leave. Ever.
As far as your mind is concerned, this is true: nothing we have let in can be completely removed.
With regard to BNI, if we let in members who are not good for the group, getting rid of them is a painful and difficult experience for the group.
Look for people who are a match for your values before you invite them in. Establish a mental “doorman” to ensure that only the right people and projects get through. In BNI, the membership committee acts as the doorman.
The book is available as a special BNI edition.
