Like a winning @LinkedIn coach

coachI waxed as eloquently as I could on LinkedIn for an hour on Saturday afternoon to an audience of attorneys at the annual Avvo Lawyernomics conference.

The audience was receptive and energized by the end. I touched on my upcoming book, of course. You would too.

I received some very appreciative oral comments, tweets and requests to connect on LinkedIn. A few asked me to contact them to train them one to one.

Love it.

But by far the most memorable comment was from a man who sat all the way in the back of the room and waited for me to leave. He stuck his hand out and said, “Thanks for the great information and especially for not making this a sales job.”

Perhaps he arrived late in my session, after I said I am not employed by LinkedIn. Perhaps others came across as sales-y, in his experience sitting in educational sessions. Perhaps he just wanted to let me know he gained benefit from an hour’s time investment.

Like the winning coach leaving the court after a game, I felt the appreciation.

It’s a nice feeling.
