Webinar: Why some people have great networks and some don't

The benefits of a strong professional network are well understood. However, many people find networking difficult or unpleasant.  And, even if we understand the importance of our social capital, most of us under-invest in our networks (especially when times are good). 

In this panel webinar Professor Jeffrey Pfeffer (Stanford Graduate School of Business) and bestselling author Dorie Clark will explore what great networkers do to build and maintain their professional connections and how we can all be more strategic about our networking efforts.

Doing more with less
What sets great networkers apart is not activity or effort (though they do work on their networks). Instead, the best networkers take a more strategic - and more consistent - approach to building relationships.

In this webinar we will look at:
  • Why “working the room” is one of the least important networking skills
  • Five networking habits that build ongoing relationships
  • How great networkers seek out opportunities to help andknow what they have to give
  • Why you should look out for interactions that are not happening
  • Why sometimes a smaller but more trusted network is better

We will also discuss some of the mistakes and missteps that harm relationships and networks:
  • The five most disliked networking behaviours
  • Three signs to tell you when you are doing the wrong thing
  • Strategies to be more selective, and get more out of, the networking you do
