Everyday Networking breaks down the barriers that hold us back and shows us the way to make professional and personal connections that will support and direct us as we move forward, so we can make the difference we want for ourselves in the world and live a life full of friendship, learning, and adventure.

 

Why network

 

To be effective, authentic networkers have learned that their networking efforts must be based on principles and practices that are driven by their own attitude, values and personalities.

 

Learning how to network

 

Many people think networking is a system of contacts that can be used to gain information and assistance only when needed. This is not the true purpose of networking. Networking expands our world, helps us to take risks and reach new levels of accomplishments. It can be useful in helping us make a job change, work more effectively with colleagues and clients, and build a business. It promotes win-win situations and brings career and life together.

About the book, The Power of Everyday Networking

The Power of Everyday NetworkingThe Power of Everyday Networking will show you a networking
approach that is authentic to who you are and teach you how you can make real, everyday connections with others. It is based on my twenty-plus year adventure that has taken me to college campuses, corporate headquarters, coffee shops, and conference centers. It has given me an opportunity to work closely with a wide range of clients: recent college and MBA graduates, mid-career senior executives, on-boarding professional, and pre-retirees. Each of them was launching, building, restarting, or redirecting his or her work life. Working with these people has allowed me to collect the best practices and principles of networking and develop an educational, easy to read, and jam-packed advice book for people who understand the importance of networking, yet want to stop relying on old-school techniques and tricks.

The Power of Everyday Networking shows you a networking approach you can and will do every day. It will become a resource that you will return to again and again throughout all of your career’s twists, turns, and transitions.
