It’s as simple as this: connection drives results. Networking, branding, communication, and even top notch ideas are only bits and pieces without human connection. Regardless of your goal, who you know and who knows you goes a long way. By ‘Becoming a Connector’, individual skills are brought together for long term opportunities, successes, and relationships that yield results.
Networking and connection making are often grouped as being the same things, or as being complete opposites. The reality is that, while different, the two make a great pair. Having a solid handle on networking can streamline how you become a connector.
How do you connect? What brings people together? How can you find common ground, or get by without it? These resources revisit the basics of relationship building. From acquaintances, to coworkers, to friendships, what does it really mean to have a connection?
Being a connector means seeing opportunities when they come your way-- you might be surprised how many are going over your head, or shaking your hand. So, how do you spot them? You never stop looking.
Connection is a skill. It’s an asset, and a valuable one. But where exactly does it lead you? With some practice, focus, and a little patience, real connections can take you almost anywhere.
