Networking is… Not a bad thing! Like Dating Like Service Like Success
Networking is Not a Bad Thing It should not be insincere. It should not be self serving. It should allow you to be at your best.
Networking is like Service So long as we love we serve; so long as we are loved by others, I would almost say that we are indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend. Robert Louis Stevenson
Networking is like Service Dont approach networking as a way to enrich yourself. Understand their needs and put them above your own. Avoid quid pro quo.
Networking is Like Dating
Networking is like Dating Let the other person talk. Find interesting people. Dont leave it to chance. Dont dismiss anybody out of hand. Dont be afraid to ask for a second date.
Networking is like Success Woody Allen was right – 80% of life is just showing up. Get there on time. Always have business cards handy.
Conclusion You get out of this what you put into it. It takes time and effort. The rewards can be immeasurable.
