Becoming a good networker

Becoming a good networker

  • Generosity and Loyalty are the foundations of good networking.
  • You must build your network long before you need it.
  • It’s not the amount of time it’s the quality of the time spent.

Anyone can become a good networker. Only a few people are natural networkers, the rest of us have to practice.

Networking: developing the right mindset

Networking has a bad connotation because of people who build relationships just to exploit them. The key to successful networking is to add value to help others to succeed:

  • Don’t keep score. Contribute generously to others and be willing to ask for others’ help. Adopt the philosophy that everyone has the potential to help and be helped.
  • Crystallize your mission and strategy. It’s always easier to achieve something with a proper goal and strategy.
  • Have the courage to ask. To build a network, you must be audacious enough to put yourself out there and risk rejection.

“Relationships are all there is. Everything in the universe only exists because it is in relationship to everything else. Nothing exists in isolation. We have to stop pretending we are individuals that can go it alone.

Build your network long before you need it

 If you build a basis of understanding and trust with someone, you can sure count on their help when you eventually face a problem you can’t solve alone.

Nobody likes a leech, who only comes to you when they need your help. Everyone wants to feel respected and valued.

Develop the required networking skills

Develop the required networking skills

  • Do your homework: Develop your name list of specific people who can help you achieve your mission and short/mid-term goals. Always prepare before a meeting.
  • Approaching new contacts: Learn how to warm up cold leads in advance (do not make cold calls) and manage gatekeepers artfully.
  • Be visible.
  • Follow up consistently.
  • Master the art of small talk.
  • Your goal for conferences should be to meet like-minded people who can advance your mission.
  • Expand your social circle. Learn how to connect with the super-connectors and link your circle with someone else’s.

Super-connectors are people who know lots of people. They are known for having hundreds or thousands of contacts and their contacts often come from different walks of life.

If you are not a super-connector yourself, you should try to build up a good relationship with one. You can benefit strongly from knowing such a person.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone
