How can we reframe networking from a painful cliché, into a purposeful endeavour that enriches our community and wins us new work and collaborations?
"The currency of real networking is not greed but generosity."
Networking is often the last thing we want to do. It's a daunting prospect and a necessary evil in the modern world of 'always on' work.
But when framed and approached in the right way, networking (in so far as building new communities and forging new relationships around our goals) can become a valuable way to apply and refine our skills of creative thinking, listening, questioning and all-round communicating.
This focussed and purposeful two-hour session will be an exercise in natural networking: connecting a group of people from different organisations to explore these challenges and opportunities, and to try out practical approaches, mindsets and tools for better and more effective networking.
What we'll cover:
• Our purpose for networking
• The habits of great networkers
• Playing to our natural strengths
• Telling our own story
• Listening to learn
• Reciprocity and why givers win
How the session wil be structured:
The session will balance conversation with instruction around new methods and ways of thinking. There will be lots to try out there and then, and plenty to take away and apply.
Who the session's for:
Anyone interested in the topic who wants to make more of networking, irrespective of their starting point — and who is happy to share their personal experiences to-date.
