Picture a conference or a large meet and greet situation. How do you feel? Some of us are excited about all the new people we will meet. Others of us, let’s just say a root canal sounds like a good alternative. Devora Zack is the author of Networking for People Who Hate to Network. She joins Kevin to look at real networking. It really is about building mutually beneficial connections and we all have a different way of getting there; whether we identify as an introvert or an extrovert. Devora suggests we find our primary temperament and let that work for us, rather than against us and customize the networking to our advantage.
In this episode, Devora 1. Differentiates introverts and extroverts. 2. Defines what it means to Prep, percolate, and pace. 3. Shares advice on how to network and atypical situations.
Ask yourself: How do you prepare to network?
