TODAY'S FOCUS
How to network effectively through the recovery

By JOHN EARL CARROLL
President, Unlimited Performance, Inc.
Special to CharlestonCurrents.com

JULY 14, 2010 – As the economy locally and nationally moves through the paces of recovery, businesses search for cost-effective ways to grow sales and profits. Networking presents one such viable option for Charleston area businesses.


Carroll

Watch the most successful and effective networkers in Charleston or elsewhere and you’re bound to take away valuable tips you can apply immediately in your own work. Here are seven traits that top networkers have in common:

  • They understand what networking is. A good working definition of networking is “the process of connecting and staying connected with others”. Simply put, this is a business term for making and keeping friends. When you can connect and you’re able to stay in touch with others, they are in your network and you are in theirs. That connection opens up other possibilities.

  • They feel good about themselves. High self-esteem is critical to one’s networking effectiveness. If you’re comfortable in your own skin, others will sense that and be more comfortable around you. When you like the person you’re alone with, you have a good level of self-esteem.

  • They have a heart for the well-being of others. Networking isn’t about how much I can get from others and how quickly I can get it. Instead, networking is a giving with the expectation of return on the investment. With a generous heart, top networkers are looking out first for others and helping them along the way. They are confident in the knowledge that such kindness comes back in other ways at different times.

  • They have positive, reasonable expectations. Unrealistic expectations of results from networking are the single biggest reason why people give up easily on this form of business development. One may attend and judge an event’s success by whether he or she gets a new sale before exiting the hour-long meeting. Networking is a process; done well, as with most things in life, it requires time, energy and effort.

  • They apply the “Indirect Effect.” The best networkers conduct themselves in ways that make others want to be around them and work with and through them. In their relationships with others, they understand that the best way to get respect is to give it; the best way to get attention is to pay attention to others; and the best way to make a good impression is to be impressed by others.

  • They connect without selling. When top networkers reach out to others, it’s almost always to add value. Sometimes that is done in a selling mode. Done well, there’s a variety of reasons for the contact. You can forward an article containing timely, relevant information just to let a friend or associate know that you’re thinking of her or him. That’s connecting without selling, and it sends a clear message that you care about the person more than you care about whether you’re getting a sale every single time you’re in touch.

  • They communicate easily through several channels. Different people prefer to communicate in different ways at different times, and the best networkers keep this clearly in mind. They can connect equally effectively through e-mail, phone, snail mail or texting, and they know when to use each medium for each person they want to contact.

You can make networking more effective personally and professionally by incorporating these practices. As you commit them to habit, you’ll notice the positive difference in your results.

Art opens special doors for local student at White House
By ANN THRASH, editor

JULY 14, 2010 – A lot of grown-ups (including this one) have to turn to Google to find out who an artist named Jacob Lawrence is. But for one bright fifth-grader at Mt. Zion Elementary, knowing who Lawrence was – and what’s more, recognizing one of his paintings out of the blue – opened a few doors for the student and her friends at the White House.


Thrash

We got word of this neat story from the folks at the Gibbes Museum of Art. The Gibbes implements a program at Mt. Zion called ”Art to Go” which enhances the arts currriculum at the Title 1 school on Johns Island. Rebecca Sailor, the associate curator of education at the Gibbes, says museum teaching artist Martha Criscuolo spent time in Mt. Zion art classes once a week duing the past school year, working with the kids not only on art projects, but on art history as well. As part of the effort, the kids had several opportunities to visit the Gibbes during the course of the year, and they even had the thrill of having their own works of art displayed in the welcome area of the museum for a few days.

On a recent end-of-the-school-year trip to Washington, D.C., the fifth-grade class from Mt. Zion made quite an impression on the White House staff. We hear that the students were so well-behaved and polite during a tour of the White House’s new vegetable garden that the pastry chef who was leading the tour decided to let the kids have a quick look inside the White House itself.


“Accident,” a 1946 painting by American artist Jacob Lawrence, is part of the collection at the Gibbes Museum of Art (although it’s not currently on display). During a recent White House visit, a local fifth-grader at Mt. Zion Elementary recognized a painting there as being a Lawrence work, and the tour guide was so impressed that he showed the student and her classmates a few extra rooms at the first family’s home as a reward.

What happened inside the mansion is even better. One student surprised the tour guide by recognizing a painting as a Jacob Lawrence. “The guide couldn't believe that the children possessed such knowledge and took them to see two more rooms,” a school official said in an e-mail to the Gibbes. She attributed the perk of getting some extra time at the White House to Criscuolo, the Gibbes’ teaching artist, and her work to expose the kids to art history.

With this being summer, we weren’t able to get in touch with the right folks at the school to find out more details, and we didn’t want to publish the student’s name without her family’s OK, so that part of the story remains untold for now. But it’s neat to see the way that art can touch a child and leave a lingering impression on her – and open some unforgettable doors for her and those around her as well.

Lawrence, the artist whose painting the child recognized, lived from 1917 to 2000 and was one of the first artists to use Modernist depictions of blacks in his works. He has one work at the White House – “The Builders,” a 1947
painting (tempera on board, 20 inches x 24 inches) that the George W. Bush administration acquired for the White House’s permanent collection in 2007. You can see the painting and read more about it here.

The Gibbes has one Lawrence work in its collection – “Accident,” a gouache (opaque watercolors mixed with a preparation of gum) on board. It was painted in 1946, just a year before Lawrence painted “The Builders,” and you can see the similarities between the two paintings. We’re not sure if the Mt. Zion student had seen “The Builders” in an art-history program at the Gibbes or if she just recognized the style, but either way, it’s quite an achievement for a fifth-grader, and it’s the kind of story that makes us smile.

Lawsuit claims Apple iPhone a monopoly

Some argue that the lockup agreement with the bumbling AT&T network is a monopoly – here’s the latest on the lawsuit from Wired.

Brains over brawn: Reset Economy is good for women

Could it be? So says an article in the latest issue of the Atlantic: “In the wreckage of the Great Recession…three-quarters of the 8 million jobs lost were lost by men. The worst-hit industries were overwhelmingly male and deeply identified with macho: construction, manufacturing, high finance.”

Women are now the majority in the U.S. workforce, the clear majority in undergraduate studies, half of all medical students and new CPAs…so where are the men?

RiverDogs featured in new ESPN advertising campaign

ESPN is featuring the Charleston RiverDogs in a new brand campaign that was launched earlier this week during the State Farm Home Run Derby, a precursor to the All-Star Game. The campaign, dubbed “It’s Not Crazy, It’s Sports,” celebrates the idiosyncrasies and distinctive stories that make sports fans so passionate.

The first spot in the campaign was filmed at Joe Riley Park in early June. Titled “Sign Language,” it takes an intimate look at the complexity, art and intensity of signing in baseball. Also featured in the spot are the Hickory Crawdads, who were playing the RiverDogs at the time the campaign was filmed.
 
“We wanted to capture the distinct energy of minor league baseball, and the RiverDogs have a reputation as an especially engaging and entertaining team,” said Chris Brush, vice president of ESPN Marketing. “With the strong support they have in Charleston, teams like the RiverDogs help perpetuate the kind of fandom that we’re highlighting in this campaign. Both teams were also extremely accommodating and hospitable during a very long day of shooting.”
 
Dave Echols, general manager of the RiverDogs, said the organization was thrilled to have been chosen for the ads. “It was a lot of fun to participate in this commercial and we hope that all who see it enjoy it as much as we will,” he said. The RiverDogs are an underwriting partner of CharlestonCurrents.com.
 
In coming weeks, ESPN will debut a second spot called “Miles and Miles” that looks back at the Apollo 14 mission where astronauts Edgar Mitchell and Alan Shepard took a few golf swings on the surface of the moon. Other spots are scheduled in the months ahead.

Restaurant sponsoring Christmas cocktail contest

Charleston restaurant Circa 1886 is conducting a contest asking local residents to come up with a Charleston Christmas cocktail. The contest is the third in a series of summertime culinary contests sponsored by the AAA Four-Diamond, Forbes Four Star restaurant; others asked contestants to turn Charleston into an ice cream flavor and a Christmas cookie. The results were Seersucker Ice Cream (Charleston Chew candy, blueberries, peanuts and vanilla ice cream) and a cookie shaped like a Palmetto tree with pecans, rice flour and sesame seeds topped with a sweet tea glaze.

Cocktail enthusiasts can submit their suggested ingredients and name for the cocktail online at http://www.Circa1886.com through July 31. They also can submit a video with their suggestion tagged CharlestonChristmasCocktail on YouTube. Collins, along with restaurant manager Mark Severs and head bartender Brooks Alger, will narrow the entries to three finalists. A panel of judges will select the winner in early August at an event at Circa 1886.

The winning beverage will be served at the restaurant during December, and the winner will receive a complimentary dinner for four at Circa 1886, excluding alcohol and gratuity. To see videos of past contests and winners, visit www.YouTube.com/Circa1886.

SC ENCYCLOPEDIA
Truck farming

Truck farming is the production of annual fruit and vegetable crops to be sold fresh. Truck farming began after the Civil War as cities grew and the spread of railroads made transport faster and more efficient. In 1868 William Geraty and Frank Towles began farming on Yonges and Wadmalaw Islands, where the soil and long growing season were ideal for truck crops.

In 1889 farmers in Charleston, Colleton, Beaufort, Horry, and Berkeley Counties planted 2,103 acres of produce for market. By 1900 the acreage had more than doubled, to 4,928 acres. They grew cabbages, Irish potatoes, asparagus, turnips, string beans, lettuce, and cabbage plants. The area around Meggett in Charleston County became the world leader in the production of cabbages and potatoes.

Truck farming helped fill an agricultural niche in the lowcountry as the commercial production of rice ended. A 1907 report on agriculture in South Carolina described the Sea Islands as crisscrossed with rail lines, rail spurs, packing sheds, and icehouses to service the industry: “at every mile, and in some instances at a less distance, are station platforms filled with barrels, crates and baskets of vegetables for shipping.” On Yonges Island, in an area known as Barrelville, barrels were made to supply the farmers’ demands. Several hundred rail cars a day shipped out of Meggett, headed for eastern and western markets.

While it was a boon to the Sea Islands, truck farming was not yet a major factor in South Carolina agriculture. The 1920s and 1930s were disastrous for South Carolina agriculture as a whole. In 1932, at the urging of the Agricultural Society of South Carolina, Clemson College opened the South Carolina Truck Experiment Station (renamed the Coastal Research and Education Center in the mid-1980s) to solve problems affecting truck crops. By then some large truck farmers farmed from a distance, not living on the farms and using African Americans from South Carolina and Florida as laborers.

By the late 1970s truck farming had come into its own, and as the twenty-first century dawned, truck crops were an important contributor to South Carolina agriculture, valued at over $60 million. While many Sea Islands may appear to be wilderness from the highway, on the back roads the cotton and rice fields have given way to fields of tomatoes, melons, and other truck crops, which are harvested by migrant and resident Mexican labor.

LAGNAIPPE
Taksi driver

For those of you who have visited New Orleans, you'll know that "lagnaippe" means something provided to you that's "a little extra" -- a small delight that may accompany a meal or a 13th doughnut for a dozen bought, for example.

Publisher Andy Brack is traveling this week in Turkey on a cultural exchange and thought you'd enjoy this photographic lagnaippe of a taxi driver with attitude as he waits for a fare. For context, a Turkish police officer with a submachine gun patrolled the streets about 25 feet away. The two men seemed oblivious to each other. More next week on this interesting country.
