News Recap: Nine Things Great Leaders Say Every Day, Blowout or Budget: A High-Low Guide to Seattle Dining, Three Networking Mistakes to Avoid

The Office of Economic Development’s Daily Digest is a daily resource for business people. Here are three of our most clicked through stories for the week of February 18.

NINE THINGS GREAT LEADERS SAY EVERY DAY

INC.

Your words are among your greatest tools, start every day planning to say each of these things to at least one person. “I trust you;” trust is crucial and ensures that your employees understand how much you depend on them. “You can count on me;” if your team knows you have their back, they feel confident with you leading them. “What do you need?;” this lets your team know you care about them on both a professional and a personal level, and that you want them to succeed. And “Let’s celebrate;” make it a practice to celebrate your wins, both large and small.

 

BLOWOUT OR BUDGET: A HIGH-LOW GUIDE TO SEATTLE DINING

ZAGAT

Ready for any budget, Seattle has high- and low-options for any circumstance, whether it be a food craving or a special occasion. Among the ten suggestions are $30 for salmon at Art Restaurant and Bar at the Four Seasons Hotel Downtown, or purchase a trio of salmon sliders for just $5 during happy hour at Anthony’s. For a special occasion, Canlis Restaurant can set the budget back $125 for a tasting menu, or hit the bar at Canlis where steak tartare only costs $20.

 

THREE NETWORKING MISTAKES TO AVOID

INC.

Networking is one of the most powerful tools you can use to grow your company and reputation. But if you do it the wrong way, your would-be professional contacts won’t remember you. Here’s what not to do: Misjudging the pecking order; when networking with someone above your status, you need to show why you’re worth their time. Asking for something right away; don’t ask for a favor too soon, instead start by offering something of value first. Neglecting to state your value proposition; you want to be upfront and straightforward about what you want.
