What Makes Networking Happen?

Networking does not happen as if by magic: it takes determination and application of careful planning to bring results. Similarly you can spend many hours doing what you THINK is networking only to find you get nothing back from your efforts!

So, what makes for good networking and planning for networking success?

The answer definitely includes some or all of the following:

  • Trust
  • Rapport
  • Respect
  • Common ground
  • Authenticity – you and your offer
  • Likeability
  • Willingness

Why is networking complicated? Because it involves people and it certainly involves you being at your best!

Why is networking difficult? Because we would like business and contacts to come knocking on our proverbial door – but it never works like that! You have to be out there, with a physical presence whenever possible to get involved with people and issues.

Good Luck!
