If you’re like a lot of people, the idea of going to an event full of strangers is right up there with a root canal. You get tongue-tied simply knowing how to start up a conversation, and after a couple of painful minutes you run out of things to say. Awkward.
You never have to dread encounters with new people ever again.
Networking and building relationships is vital to your career. The good news is, you can master the process without a complete personality makeover.
Although the book was written by an introvert for other introverts, you don’t have to be one to discover these techniques works for everyone.
Designed as a four-part guide, each part (or Pillar as the author calls them) builds on the other to give you a framework you can apply now and throughout your career.
Here’s what you will discover:
Pillar #1 – The building blocks necessary to develop ALL relationships, both professional and personal
Pillar #2 – Where the best – and worst – places are to expand your network and meet new people
Pillar #3 – Effective ways to engage and interact with everyone, including new people you meet, starting from how you begin a conversation all the way to how to end a conversation
Pillar #4 – How to maintain your network long-term and keep your momentum going
Finally there’s guidance for networking that won’t make you cringe or embarrass you. You will quickly gain the confidence and mastery of networking that you thought was only for the lucky few.
If you liked “Quiet” or “How to Win Friends & Influence People” you’ll want to put this book on your list.
“We all know networking matters. Great jobs and great opportunities all seem to flow from great relationships. Despite knowing the importance and virtue of networking, I have always been reluctant to engage in it. I loved the approach particularly in Pillar #3: strategies on how to engage with your network and create lasting, mutually beneficial connections. I particularly liked the specific tips on how to both start and end conversations (something I had struggled with in the past). Thanks for writing this great book.” Ben Sands, Best-Selling Author – Regret-Free Personal Finance
