In order to increase your contact base and your sphere of influence you’ve got to get out there, get in front of people, communicate and build connections.
In a recent article published in Forbes, Glenn Llopis states that:
Networking demands that you test your ideas, hone your ability to communicate and improve your executive presence. Networking is a full-time job and the more time you dedicate to it – the more you will learn what works for you and against you. The more you procrastinate, the more you will find yourself disconnected from the opportunities that may potentially advance your career or allow you to meet the right people.
Nobody said business networking was going to be easy. Remember, in most cases those who are successful don’t procrastinate and don’t give up doing the things they don’t like to do. And networking is the perfect example of that – you just have to keep doing it even if you don’t like it.
Networking is both an art and a science. But in the end – networking should be fun, exciting and a rewarding approach to advancement. The more you network – with a positive outlook – the more you will learn. And if you’re always learning, you are growing and thus developing yourself – especially your interpersonal communication skills. Once you have become a pro at networking, you can begin to share your experiences, tips and tricks with others.
What could really help is to know the “tips and tricks” of networking before-hand, to develop confidence and get results fast. If networking is a science, there’s got to be a formula behind it.
