Today's episode is a solo episode on a skill that many of my guests have highlighted as critical to their success - networking.
networking, whether you like it or not is a critical skill in a relationship focused business like Consulting. While I think the old adage of 'it's not what you know, it's who you know' is only partly true. I firmly believe that knowledge and capability alone will never get you to the top in any career, hobby or activity you want to pursue.
With that in mind I thought I'd share my tips to help those of you who hate networking and those of you who know they need to do it but just aren't sure how!
In today's episode I share:
- Why networking is so critical to career success and why you will never reach the top (or wherever you want to get to) without it.
- How to get over your fear of networking and 'not knowing what to say'.
- The networking tips that helped me build a senior network while I was in Consulting and continue to help me grow my network today.
- The counter-intuitive approach to maximising the value from your network - trust me, it won't be what you're expecting
