You, the Learning and Development Roundtable members asked for a workshop on networking and here’s the result…..
When I say networking, do you scrunch up your face in frustration, nerves or dismay? Do you think of networking like bad tasting cough medicine, something you know you need to take/do but really, you’d rather not?
Does the mere mention of networking make your stomach roll with images of pushy sales people in bad, polyester suits?
Do you think networking is about getting super personal? Or not personal enough? As merely handing out business cards during awkward cocktail conversations?
Do I have news for you my friend.
“The importance of the saying “no man is an Island” … is the reason why many of us need to make a collective effort in the bid to achieve professional success. For many individuals that have succeeded in their career, the causes have largely been contributed to the strong networking channels they have created over time.” (Source: Forbes).
It can and should be interesting, intriguing and something you actually look forward to.
The key is networking in a way that works for you with tools that fit you.
