Workshop

Does networking feel overwhelming? Do you wish there was a better way of figuring out who you need to know? To focus your activities so networking feels less haphazard and more strategic?

Studies of high performer networks and network science shows us that all networks are not created the same. People with stronger networks have six specific types represented in their networks, including mentors, sponsors, truth tellers, and gatekeepers. Learn about these four types—and the other two types you need—in this engaging, interactive session. Along the way, we’ll bust some popular myths, like the best people to have in your network are the ones you don’t have yet and one mentor is enough, and we’ll have fun doing it.
