Professional Networking

Networking is simultaneously, one of the most self-evident and one of the most dreaded developmental challenges that aspiring leaders must address. Effective leadership requires leaders to have a nose for opportunity and a knack of knowing whom to tap to get things done. In other words, successful leaders require strategic, operational and personal networking skills.

We provide you with three resources that is intended to educate emerging leaders on how to diagnose their network, build an effective one and maintain it over the years. This material also gives tips for the Introverts out there and redefines networking by reminding us to not forget to leverage our existing ties.
