Some of us will never enjoy walking into a room of strangers and having to make connections. Does that mean we’re doomed professionally? Not at all! Maya Townsend, founder and lead consultant at Partnering Resources, will explain some of the science behind networking and show how that science can help engineers, technologists, and introverts make connections successfully and strategically. She will draw on insights from the social sciences and business world to explain the networking practices of high performers. Maya will dispel the myth that people who want strong networks should never eat alone and, instead, explain the simple actions that can significantly contribute to the health of their network.
If you attend this session, you can expect to come away with:
• An understanding of some of the science behind networking.
• An ability to identify networking practices of high performers.
• A first-pass analysis of your professional network’s strengths and gaps.
Note: This event is a collaboration between the Society of Professional Consultants and WEST.
