1. Virtual Networking – With intent or just keeping score?
Remember those anonymous requests that you received recently asking you to connect with them with an unintended purpose? Ironically, we’ve all done that. What you and I, we’ve been trying to do is either to expand our professional outreach and connect with interesting people who we don’t know or get to meet people who might be the solution to our problems.
During this process of reaching out, we have never been given a chance to express “WHY?” Why is it that someone is interested in connecting with me? What is that purpose?
2.Recommended to connect – a work around or another barrier?
Introductions from trustworthy sources are important. However, to what extent? Is this a viable option when it comes to networking everyday? You are dependent on someone else. And, this can get inefficient and time consuming.
3. Attending the occasional conference or professional gathering – purposeful or social?
From learning the latest innovations in the field of interest to meeting the smartest and most influential people on the planet – these events are a gateway to unfathomable opportunities. But, being lost within a sea of thousands of people is a harsh reality. And, building connections the old fashioned way of looking at nametags; these events are not only expensive both financially and in terms of the amount of time you take to invest for showing up.
4. So, what’s your networking experience been like?
Generally speaking, we have all amassed 100s of connections online. It has taken a great deal of effort and time to do so. But, how many of them have been impactful? How many of them have actually made a difference in helping you develop your professional goals by discovering the right set of people?
Based on our conversations with 100’s of professionals around the globe, across all industries, the conclusion that we’ve come to is that: professional networking needs to
EVOVLE + be more ENGAGING + LONG LASTING.
