This time of year is all about parties, events, gatherings, food and people! Yes, that’s a good thing and a bad thing.
It is good because:
- It provides an opportunity to connect with more people and reconnect with those we should be in touch with
It is bad because:
- It can involve spending money or overindulging
Keith Ferrazzi’s post “Tis the Season for Holiday Networking” lists posts on how to more effectively network, plus it provides helpful links to cost-saving advice!
My purpose in sharing Keith’s post is to introduce you to him if you aren’t already familiar with his work (and oh, by the way, he’s published some excellent books about networking, add them to your reading list) and second, we all need a little help.
Here’s a peek to entice you to link through!
Don’t just read this, put a couple into action. Do you want to know how to make a graceful exit when you feel stuck talking with someone? Or how about how to take the conversation to the next level? How will you follow up? Go ahead, read and act! Find the good in this time of year and by all means, give more than you receive!
