Does networking really make a difference? The answer is a resounding yes! But too many of us network haphazardly and hope that our efforts will have an effect.

In this workshop, Maya Townsend, founder and lead consultant of Partnering Resources, will help you move beyond an ad hoc approach to a sustainable, targeted, high-impact networking practice. She will help you learn how to build the strategic networks that can help you ace your projects, advance your career, and find new opportunities. You will:
  • Learn about the science behind networking
  • Understand the four networks that everyone needs–and the one that women usually neglect
  • Assess your network for strategic strength
  • Understand how to build a more sustainable, high-impact networking practice

Six Strategies for Making Change Stick (HINT: Connections Matter!)

Date: June 19, 2013

Conference

Leaders of middle-market companies face lofty challenges: how to sustain growth, how to lead significant change, how to capture ideas and turn them into competitive wins. You can’t tackle these alone. At Build’s high-impact, day-long event you will huddle with fellow leaders of middle market companies for an insider perspective on challenges … and road-tested solutions. Expect unparalleled networking, highly interactive sessions, key actionable takeaways, and an afternoon cocktail party!

Maya Townsend of Partnering Resources will present on Six Strategies for Making Change Stick (HINT: Connections Matter!):

Challenge: To get better, we have to evolve — but only 38% of leaders say their change efforts have actually improved performance. Why is it so tough to win buy-in and make change stick?

Solution: Change by dictum doesn’t work. The only thing that does: connections, and lots of them. Studies show that effective change makers simultaneously employ these six strategies for building the individual, social, and structural connections that make transformation excite — and, therefore, take hold within — an organization.
