Here’s are selected excerpts of my contribution to the networking article:
- “This is not rocket science, and yet I coach a number of senior-level executives – both men and women – who tell me they hate networking and that they’re terrible at it. So the first thing I do is help them redefine what networking is. There’s a misperception that it’s a sign of being needy. I explain that networking is just talking – and relax them with the fact that informal intercourse with colleagues usually makes for the best connections.”
- “To get started, I advise clients to make a list with three columns. The first list is of people they can call easily, the second is of people they know somewhat; and the third is of completely new contacts – cold calls that would be more of a stretch. I make them start with the first column and help them build from there, so eventually, they can make cold calls or introductions in the third column confortably.”
- “Networking is really a partnership. It’s not about what someone can get or needs from another – it’s about what they both can bring to the table. I remind clients it’s not entirely about them. They can maximize any networking situation by offering themselves as a resource, after asking a few questions. It makes for a more comfortable experience, and it works.”
