Everyone’s Network Should Provide Two Things

Networking is an important part of getting ahead in this world. From knowing the right people to get tickets to finding the mentor you have needed to push you to the next level professionally your network can take you places you wouldn’t be able to achieve on your own. These are two important things that any successful network must contain to truly be effective. Find out what you might be missing!

Key Takeaways:

  • While it’s easy to think that vast technology-enabled networks aren’t as real or valuable as the old-fashioned, face-to-face variety, research doesn’t support that view.
  • Rather than dismissing the vast network of people you hardly know, you should recognize it for what it is: an amazing source of ideas, connections, and assistance.
  • Your big, distant, loose network that can help you solve myriad business challenges probably provides little or no value in the realm of psychosocial support.

“When I interviewed people for a university research project 23 years ago about networking, many people weren’t familiar with the term.”
