CONNECT WITH PEOPLE:
Having a strong personal brand requires being connected to a network of resources for mutual development and growth. We achieve our greatest success through our relationships with others. That’s why it is critical to build and maintain your network.
Personal networks are largely external, made up of discretionary links to people with whom we have something in common. As a result, what makes a personal network powerful is its referral potential. According to the famous six degrees of separation principle, our personal contacts are valuable to the extent that they help us reach, in as few connections as possible, the far-off person who has the information we need.
What differentiates a leader from a manager, research tells us, is the ability to figure out where to go and to enlist the people and groups necessary to get there. Recruiting stakeholders, lining up allies and sympathizers, diagnosing the political landscape, and brokering conversations among unconnected parties are all part of a leader’s job. As they step up to the leadership transition, some managers accept their growing dependence on others and seek to transform it into mutual influence.
Networking is a proven strategy for building your business and experienced business people know that anything is possible through networking. You must constantly expand your network of contacts and think of them as a forgotten investment on which you might eventually be able to collect a return.
One of the best ways to keep your business going is to create opportunities. Opportunities come from cultivating relationships and sharing ideas, information and resources. Networking is the act of connecting with people for business, information or friendship.
