Is Your Networking Working?

To effectively navigate through the social or business environment, it’s essential to add live networking to your portfolio of talents. Although you may feel more comfortable in the social networking environment, eventually you have to get out and meet people to develop relationships. Give yourself the permission to learn networking and do it well, even though you may not love it!

Most of you are familiar with the definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over, but expecting different or better results. You need to evaluate your efforts to ensure that your networking choices are working for you. Are you meeting or adding people to your Netbank? Can they help you? Will they help you? Why or why not? By actively evaluating your network, you will discover the best use of your time and efforts—for you and for your professional or social life. These are the people who will help you succeed.
