Create the work and life you’ve imagined.
Are you a professional, CEO, or entrepreneur frustrated with the typical approaches to trying to grow your career or advance your business? Perhaps you want to diversify your team and develop real relationships across cultures, but the task seems so daunting given the many pitfalls and competing priorities?
It’s time to reframe your thinking and build meaningful connections to transform your business and your life. The old mental model of networking only for job searches and business development is too limiting and often invokes anxiety rather than joy. It excludes the richness of diversity that exists when you form authentic relationships that are aligned with your vision and strategy.
My aim is to expand your thinking beyond transactional networking to the cultivation and maintenance of healthy, inclusive, productive relationships. For leaders who are seeking to enhance and/or build more inclusive networks, I’ve included “Executive Focus” sections on key topics. My personal belief is that leadership is about mindset, behaviors, and the influence to effect change—not just a title. There are many people without the designated titles who will benefit from these insights as well.
While some challenges and nuances are unique to diverse, multicultural professionals, most of the issues related to professional networking resonate with broader audiences. Many people experience a deeply rooted fear of reaching out beyond their personal comfort zones. I define “comfort zone” as that which makes one feel safe—it is the opposite of risk taking. Inherent in the process of relationship building and networking is the risk of rejection, the possibility of failure, and, for those whose energy comes from within, the energy drain that can follow networking events.
At its core, effective networking is about relationships and practices that allow you to attain your measure of success. What is unique about this book is its atypical approach, its appreciation of the challenges of diverse professions, and its practical implementation tools. Its ultimate goal is to guide you toward the attainment of your dream.
In Strategic Networking 2.0, Juliette Mayers shows how you can reframe networking to be a catalyst for achieving your goals.
