How to Build a Powerful Network... Without "Networking
Make business connections that really matter with 3 ways you can build a powerful professional network
Trite though it may sound, the adage is true: When it comes to business, “it’s not what you know, but who you know” that matters.
In today’s hyper-connected world, it is no longer enough that you keep your head down and produce exemplary work. To professionally thrive, now you must be vocal about your interests and career goals to build relationships with like-minded individuals you can turn to as a resource and who may even be in the position to help you.
Unfortunately, for most of us, the thought of forced small talk and limited drink tickets at traditional “networking” events can induce anxiety. But that’s certainly not the only way to develop good connections.
