The Challenge: Connecting with Intent

In today’s consulting world, meaningful connections with like-minded individuals drive personal growth and collective progress. King emphasizes that having commonalities alone doesn’t guarantee a deep alignment of principles and values, stating, “The problem with systems is that we are often pushed into forcefully created tribes with people that we have things in common with.“.

To foster transformative collaborations, King suggests connecting with conscious leaders who share similar principles. He states, “What I focus on is helping conscious leaders connect with conscious leaders with whom they have things in alignment with.” It’s crucial for conscious leaders to prioritize connections with individuals who share core beliefs and aspirations, rather than relying on superficial similarities.

Facilitating this process, King highlights the significance of Nimble’s relationship building software in conjunction with LinkedIn. He explains, “Nimble’s relationship building software allows me to look for other conscious leaders in conjunction with LinkedIn and find folks based on their group affiliations, enabling me to seek alignment.” By leveraging these tools, conscious leaders actively seek out like-minded individuals who align with their values, initiating the formation of a professional tribe.

According to King, preparation is key in connecting with intent. He states, “The way that you connect with intent is through preparation.Nimble empowers King to adequately prepare before establishing professional connections, ensuring he enters interactions with confidence and readiness.

When using Nimble Propsector, King takes time to fully examine his new contacts’ social media profiles. He essentially uses Nimble’s auto-population capabilities to conduct research on his connections prior to formally contacting them. With the insights gathered through this research, King can reference topics and discussions individuals have been engaging in on social media. He says, “When I actually do send out an invitation to them [new contacts], I can reference some of the things that they’ve already been talking about on social media sites based off of my Nimble research.” This personalized approach allows King to establish a connection right from the start.

​​King highly values the Marked As Important contact feature and Stay In Touch Reminders provided by Nimble. He emphasizes the importance of these features, stating, “Weekly reminders are key because my focus is connecting with intent, vetting 30 people per-month is a lot of time and effort.
