  • Discussed the importance of observation and questioning
  • Importance of appropriate referrals
  • Introduction to organisational planning
  • Contingency planning
  • Skilled networkers are individuals who realise that networking is a life skill, not just something you do when you want something. Networking includes connecting with different cultures, ages, special interests groups and networks. You make strong connections, follow up, keep in touch, identify and make contacts - forming win/win strategic alliances.
  • Skilled networkers understand that their ongoing success depends on treating their networks and the people within them with respect and integrity. This is one of the reasons why building networks takes time, effort and, most of all, sincerity.
  • The networking world is open to everyone, without exception, as long as your networking values are strong, ethical and transparent.
Skilled networkers have created simple systems that enable them to connect with others, stay connected and create valuable lifetime connections with key players other networkers.
  • Skilled networkers are not born, they are created. It need not be a complex process.
  • Anyone can improve their networking skills. The networking world is open to everyone, without exception, as long as your networking values are strong, ethical and transparent.
principles of networking
Principles of networking
  • The law of abundance - Just because your diary is empty does not mean that there are no opportunities around. Skilled networkers believe in an abundance of opportunities get out and about – make and grasp opportunities
  • The law of reciprocity - That you give out comes back tenfold. If you give out help, you get back help; give out information, you get back information. The challenge, of course, is that although for you the giving is instant and in the short term, the receiving may not happen for some time. Also, what is returned may not come from the person to whom it was given.
  • The law of giving without expectation - This occurs when you give without an expectation of receiving something. You do something for someone not to get something back, but because you want to help them achieve their goal.
habits of a skilled networker
Habits of a skilled networker
  • Understand that networking is a life skill, not something you do only when you want something from someone else.
  • Value your networks. Realise that every member forms part of the jigsaw of your professional life and you never know where people will turn up later. The opinion they gain of you now can affect their future opinion of you (and the opinions of others).
  • Practise making heart-to-heart connections with people when you communicate with them. Aim to be totally present and ‘in the moment’ at all times.
Arm yourself with business cards and a nametag when you attend an event. Collect business cards wherever you go.
  • Befriend the gatekeepers – the people who assist or sometimes protect the people you want to network with (secretaries, personal assistants and so on).
  • Walk your talk. Directly and indirectly you will become a role model to others.
  • Form strategic alliances based on quality not quantity. The most powerful people are those who share information. Always be generous with information.
Maintain confidentiality in relation to staff processes according to organisation and to protect individuals
