Network Connector with Jayne Griffiths
In this episode, #businessyoda and Amazon-Best-Selling Author Shannon Bush is back and today discussing the Network Connector Thrive Factor Archetype! Shannon interviews Jayne Griffiths, who identifies as a Network Connector.
Shannon starts off by describing the characteristics of a Network Connector, and gives some advice about traversing this archetype. Jayne tells us about her business Indigo Shift and explains what she does in her work. Jayne shares how she started working with Shannon and identifies her archetypes as the Inspirer Believer, Mentor Teacher, Advocate Rescuer, Shapeshifter Alchemist, and the Network Connector, as well as some of the challenges she’s faced with them and strengths she has because of them.
Jayne tells us more about her Network Connector, and how she enjoys networking and meeting people. She finds it very easy to connect people with each other; sharing that it seems like a natural thing to her, and describes it as a ‘map in her head’. She does admit, that networking can be tiring sometimes, and that networking connections can at times be shallow. She’s now dedicated herself to smaller networking groups so that she can create long and meaningful relationships.

Pearls of Wisdom
“A Networker Connector has an incredibly wide and broad and deep network of individuals in her world, both on a personal level and a professional level” – Shannon
“I feel like I almost carry a map around in my head, about everyone I meet and how they would all link to each other, and to me that seems very natural” – Jayne
“Network connectors hover and see, scan the room, to see who’s there, to see who you know, see who you don’t know, see who you think might not know each other, and put all those pieces of the human puzzle together” – Shannon
