WHO DO YOU NEED AROUND YOU?
Networking is an essential skill; it′s the key to success. So why are so many of our connections superficial and transactional? And why do they get us nowhere in our personal or professional life? Maybe because we′ve lost sight of the fact that it′s not about the quantity of connections you make, but the quality of the relationships you build and nurture.
From internationally–acclaimed entrepreneur and Fortune 500 mentor Janine Garner, It′s Who You Know shows you how to build, manage and leverage your power network as the source of diversity, strength and opportunity you need to achieve the success you crave. Discover how to:
- master the art of real, influential strategic networking
- find and connect with the people you need in your power network
- use your network to help make your dreams of success come true
- future–proof your career and business ventures with a power network that evolves with you and is a non–stop source of opportunity and support.
Networking still matters, but your network matters more. With It′s Who You Know, you can learn to connect with those who′ll add real value to your professional and personal development.
