I would like to proclaim 2013 the year for Relationship Building!
Chances are, you’ve been cooped up in your current role in your company without a lot of interaction with other people. It happens. But your career success is dependent on the relationships you have with others. Remember, people hire and do business with people they like and/or know.
Relationships Take Time
Start By Identifying “Must Meet” People
Be Strategic and Purposeful
Change Your Mission
For more insight on making these things happen in 2013, please see my post on US News & World Report’s On Careers.
Make 2013 the year you ‘build it before you need it’ by reaching out and establishing relationships with people inside and outside your organization. And if you haven’t read Keith Ferrazzi’s “Never Eat Alone,” this might be the time!
