The Power Of Connections! – Leaders Lifting Leaders is an excellent book that helps to understand what is networking in real terms and its importance in personal and professional life both. This book also shares the small steps to creating a good network.
While talking one of the Author’s of this Book, Gauri Das told SightsIn Plus introducing the Book.
Let the truth be out !!!
Following were my thoughts on networking for a very long time
A skill that only extroverts can hone
A draining task
Waste of time money and energy
I don’t need it
Networking is worth only when you can connect with big names
And the best one …………………..Those having no work, network 🙂
“If you are like my old self, you can easily connect with these. Though nothing can be far from the truth. Nevertheless, I am glad I started understanding the power of connections before it was too late.” She said.
Gauri further said, “As they say, your network is your net worth. It is so true, especially in today’s times. Whether you are an entrepreneur or a corporate executive or a freelancer, networking is one of the most important skills. Word of mouth is still one of the cheapest yet most effective tools for branding. I am blessed to have a large and supportive network and whenever I need help, there is always someone to support me. Whether it is looking for a vendor for office work or a recommendation on the best doctor or yoga instructor or looking for a solution to a complex situation. Networking has worked in all situations.”
“But this was not the case before. Like many others, I misunderstood the meaning of networking and thought it to be very transactional where I met only relevant people that too when I had a need. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Networking is not about any of these. It is about connecting with people without any expectations. Once the realization set in, I started noticing the change and observed how enriched I had become when it comes to my network.” She said.
She added, “While I learnt my lessons hard and a long way, I wanted to share my learnings with the world in a simplistic manner, and hence my friends and I came together to write this book and share our collective wisdom. I wish networking was taught in colleges but just like many life skills, this too does not find a place in our curriculum but we must learn it and this book is going to be a quick resource for this purpose. 11 of us have brought our collective wisdom about the power of connections and one can use it as a guide.”
